Today Dr. Rajiv Jhangiani @rjhangiani @thatpsychprof, (co-author of the Open Pedagogy Notebook) tweeted about “Resilient Pedagogy: Practical Teaching Strategies to Overcome Distance, Disruption, and Distraction”
He had this to say about Resilient Pedagogy:
“Both thoughtful and practical, this volume is a very welcome contribution to the discussion about higher education in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. The contributors generously share their hard-won lessons and innovative strategies, while avoiding either techno-solutionism or fearmongering. Although not blind to the impact of the broader systems and constraints that educators and learners operate within, this collection of chapters provides clear guidance to faculty on how they may navigate key pedagogical choices and apply specific guiding principles in order to design more flexible, inclusive, supportive, and resilient learning environments.”
Faculty and staff in higher education have seen first-hand how distance, disruption, and distraction can challenge our perceptions of teaching and learning while highlighting inequities across our colleges and universities. As the first book in the Empower Teaching Open Access Book Series, the editors of Resilient Pedagogy asked authors to explore the concepts surrounding resilient pedagogy in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the social justice movements that impacted higher education in myriad ways, and provide practical strategies to better support students across contexts.
