´Practising a Pragmatic Critical Pedagogy in Higher Education: Insights from a Trans-National Education Development´

Wednesday, 08 May 2019

In this presentation we offer a theoretical perspective on developing a more pragmatic approach to practicing critical pedagogy in contemporary higher education. We illuminate this with insights into how this theoretical perspective has underpinned collaborative development of a PG Cert and MA, as part of a Trans-National Education (TNE) partnership between the UK and the Republic of the Philippines.

Participants are then invited to engage in some modelling and questioning activities to explore how such pragmatic critical pedagogy might inform reflection and action in the context of their own pedagogical perspectives and practices. We conclude by outlining how a trans-national participant action research (PAR) study, supported with a Newton Grant from the British Council, investigates how our approach to pragmatic critical pedagogy might support a sustainable and socially inclusive practice through collaborative CPD networks.


Jennifer Bain and Juliet Sprake, Senior Lecturers, Goldsmiths, University of London, are joint academic leads on a UK/RP Trans-National Teaching Partnership and principle investigators on a British Council funded research project ‘A Sustainable Framework for Design Thinking in Education’.
