CHID 480E: Imagining 'Edutopias' for Social Justice: Experiments in Radical Pedagogy
Check out the Spring 2012 course website for the syllabus, other resources, and lots of information about the course! It's open to all folks with a UW Net ID. If you're curious about the class and don't have a UW Net ID, get in touch with me at email@example.com. I'd be happy to send you info directly.
You also should know that the spring 2012 group will be active in redesigning the course for our Autumn learning adventure, so stay tuned about interesting changes to come...
An additional note: it will be useful to have some familiarity with terminology and frameworks for understanding and analyzing dynamics of privilege and oppression, power, and identity (or willingness to do some extra exploring of a variety of anti-oppression frameworks if you find yourself confused as we move through the quarter).
