GESS 4930 Spring 2014 Special Topics Course: Radical Pedagogy
This student-led special topics offering will be facilitated by Jessica Callahan, CELT fellow and GESS major. She provides the following description of the class: In this seminar, you will be presented with the opportunity to claim responsibility for your own education. This class will be a radical experiment in free thought, engaged learning, intentional conversation, and queer pedagogy. This seminar will largely be what participants make of it. Doing away with the traditional hierarchy of the professor/student model, each student enrolled in this course is challenged to both teach and learn from their peers. The course will be split into three sections (theory, application, and creativity) as a means of progressing from understanding, to engagement, to transformation. Final evaluations, based on students' self- and peer-evaluation exercises, will be the responsibility of the professor-of-record, GESS Program Director Prof. Nancy Maveety.
