Welcome to EDU 5569: Critical Pedagogy of Place

What are we up to?

Here is what the course syllabus says we are up to:

In this course for educators of all disciplines, sustainability is developed as a compelling context for motivating and designing curriculum and instruction. You will learn how to use critical, place based, and problem-based pedagogical strategies to engage students in deep learning. You will be able to contextualize learning within the disciplines of mathematics, science, social studies, language arts and the arts. This will enable you to create learning environments where young people have greater access to and understanding of multidisciplinary ideas. In this way, they will broaden their capacity to contribute to a socially and ecologically just future.
