EDU8704 New Pedagogies

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts
School or Department : School of Linguistics, Adult and Specialist Educ
Student contribution band : National Priority - Teaching
ASCED code : 070303 - Education Studies


The course will explore the impetus for and the effects of a move to the decolonization of education generally, and will focus specifically on "new" (to Western eyes) pedagogies such as Red pedagogy (Sandy Grande), Kaupapa Maori pedagogy (Linda Tuiwhai Smith, Graham Smith, Russell Bishop), Native Hawai'an pedagogy (Manulani Meyer) and Islamic perspectives on knowing (Christopher Stonebanks). A major intention here is to then connect the Western critical tradition to these emerging decolonialist pedagogies. Major theorists in the critical pedagogical field and the intellectual and activist traditions in which they have worked will be presented, as will specific examples of new critical pedagogy in practice.
