Digital Pedagogy Lab 2017 Institute

Philosophy

Digital Pedagogy Lab pursues a commitment to education through pedagogy and outreach. We advocate for the elevation of the student and the contingent teacher, the proliferation of voices across education, and the ongoing investigation and creative implementation of critical and digital pedagogies.

This project is not ideologically neutral. Our work is inspired by critical pedagogues like Paulo Freire and bell hooks. Education happens everywhere, all the time, and so people must be empowered to learn and teach throughout their lives.


Practice

Digital Pedagogy Lab offers a series of professional development opportunities including an annual 5-day institute, which offers hands-on work in critical digital pedagogy. We also offer other kinds of educational outreach online, including regular #digped chats on Twitter, open online courses, and more.

Starting in 2016, Digital Pedagogy Lab will be going “on the road” when invited by institutions, groups, or organizations interested in bringing the Institute environment to their educators, learners, technologists, and administrators.
