The radical tradition in education holds, roughly, that the proper goal of education is movement toward a more egalitarian and more democratic society. In this community of practice, we explore what the radical tradition has to say about teaching and learning in higher education. On the radical view, what should students and instructors be and do? How should they understand and practice teaching and learning? What should they aim at? To examine these questions, we will read and discuss excerpts from Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed and from the “Port Huron Statement,” the political and educational manifesto of Students for a Democratic Society.
Open to students, staff, and faculty.
Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions to build community and dive deeply into material.
