This series is for you if you...

  • Are a post-graduate research student or early-career researcher at UCL.
  • Teach in universities or have plans to start teaching.
  • Are interested in the theory and practice of critical pedagogies.
  • Want to meet like-minded colleagues from across UCL and join a community centred on critical pedagogies.

*No expertise or prior knowledge is required! Some introductory readings will be shared before each event.

Workshop 1 will serve as an introduction to the challenges and opportunities of critical pedagogies in higher education, and a space to reflect on our positions as (often) precarious educators. We will be joined by Dr Lauren Clark from UCL, and Dr Rowan Jaines from the University of Sheffield. You can read more about our invited experts and sign up here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/critical-pedagogies-in-higher-education-workshop-1-tickets-587046871997

We hope that you will be able to join us for all or most of the workshops in the series. We are currently developing a second phase of this project, focused on creating a space for peer support around implementing what we have learned. Your suggestions for how this might work are most welcome, and we will have time to reflect on this together towards the end of the series.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Ros Greiner (rosamund.greiner.18@ucl.ac.uk).

With generous support from UCL Changemakers, the IAS Octagon Fund and the Gender and Feminism Research Network.
