Virtual Egalitarianism, Critical Pedagogy, and Geographic Education
Lukinbeal, Chris; Allen, Casey D.
Journal of Geography, v106 n5 p199-205 Sep 2007
This article explores the implementation of critical pedagogic practices into a graduate level landscape seminar Web site. Critical pedagogy seeks to reconfigure student-teacher relationships and disrupt embedded power regimes within academia and society. Critical pedagogic practices create a dialogue amongst learners, where everyone has a stake in the learning process. By turning all students into instructors on the course Web site, a virtual community was created that allowed for theories and identities to be openly explored and contested. In the seminar, the inherent hierarchies of power between teacher-students were removed, allowing for the formation of a critical moral consciousness that permitted deep learning. (Contains 3 notes.)
