PCD@LA 2019 Track: Radical Pedagogy


Hello! I wanted to make certain I created a thread for community members interested in discussing and asking questions related to the Radical Pedagogy track for PCD@LA 2019.

Below, you will find a brief description and some issues and topics to be covered.
The track coordinator is A.M. Darke

The Radical Pedagogy track welcomes proposals that considers compassion, critical thought, and nuance as a core experience in teaching and learning. We are interested in applications that put an emphasis on:

  • Marginalized history and storytelling
  • Inclusive pedagogy and curriculum building
  • Building bridges between institutional, non-profit, DIY, and grassroot communities
  • Experimental teaching tools and materials

Thanks Dorothy! I am very interested. I am a bit confused. Do we apply to participate via the Open Call?

A.M. Drake - can you guide or just simply confirm that we apply via Open Call?



Thank YOU so much for joining the conversation. I should have posted the Open Call link. Please see below.

As noted, the Open Call ends on 8/31, which is soon, but here are the types sessions you can propose:

Each session should address a specific track and run for 45 minutes, and you are in charge of the session format — it can be a workshop, a forum, a group project, a mini-hackathon etc. A session can fill up to 35 people. Please make a note in your application if your proposed session has a limit of attendees.

Here is the form to propose a session: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfkTz4OarhA-0tCJ74Lzm5-zGBxrqIn4R2FH7qCAuqvK6qoJw/viewform

PLEASE feel free to reach out with any additional questions and/or concerns! :smile:
