Becoming a Critically Reflective Practitioner


Thursday, April 8, 2021, 3:00pm to 4:00pm



A stack of books on topics of critical pedagogy and equity and inclusion.The 3-part Critical Pedagogy Workshop Series is designed for PhD students at all stages who are interested in critical pedagogies, thinking about building their teaching portfolios, and how teaching fits in to their own professional development goals. Each workshop considers different perspectives on teaching–from our disciplines, our students, and other lenses, and how to use those on our own learning journeys as teachers and scholars. Students may attend workshops individually or sign up for all three. 

Becoming a Critically Reflective Practitioner
Thursday, April 8, 3:00-4:00pm EDT
Led by Pamela Pollock

As scholars, we are always developing our research, but how do we think about learning and growing as a teacher? How does what we learn from teaching, especially during these unprecedented and turbulent times in higher education, help us reflect on and adapt our own teaching practice? In this session, we will use Stephen Brookfield’s lenses for reflective teaching-- 1) self, 2) students, 3) colleagues, and 4) scholarship-- to explore these questions and build our own toolkit for becoming critically reflective teacher-scholars.


See sessions one and two in the series.

Please Note: Workshops will not be recorded; follow-up materials and additional resources will be shared afterward. Interested students are encouraged to visit the Equity and Inclusion page of our website.
