Intro: a Critical Digital Pedagogy Buffet

Critical digital pedagogy is a complex topic with multiple facets and it's difficult to get an all-encompassing look. This track will take a "buffet" approach, offering a taste of everything, and will be perfect for people who are new to these ideas. The processes we use will be mostly participatory workshopping and reflection. Social justice will be central to our content choices and processes. As a cohort, we will work to empower through care, and to make these complex concepts digestible. We will create a co-learning journey where each participant can contribute to the collective learning.

The buffet will offer a taster of different elements of critical digital pedagogy. Explore your tastes, gather ideas and ingredients along the way, and bring a dish to our potluck on the final day.

Each day has a different focus:

  • Day 1: Inclusive community building
  • Day 2: Critical open pedagogy
  • Day 3: Decolonial/antiracist pedagogy
  • Day 4: Ethical edtech
  • Day 5: Potluck: everyone shares reflections, synthesis, ideas, plans

Throughout the week, we will collaborate  asynchronously and synchronously across different timezones. Synchronous sessions will use Liberating Structures and Theater of the Oppressed techniques, which are themselves useful methodologies for critical digital pedagogy.
