EdSurge Live: A Town-Hall Style Video Forum

What Is Critical Digital Pedagogy, and Why Does Higher Ed Need It?

There’s an ongoing narrative that robots, digital tools and new tech-enabled teaching methods are changing the way professors teach and students learn. But how do instructors keep agency and freedom at the forefront of this learning revolution?

If you ask Jesse Stommel, director of the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies at the University of Mary Washington, he’ll tell you there’s and urgent need for teachers in the era of robots and machines in education. His latest book, co-authored with Sean Michael Morris, explores that very issue. And they argue for professors to pay more attention to critical pedagogy and instructional design and its role in the digital humanities, writing, social justice and more.

But what does that look in practice? We’ll also be joined by Martha Burtis, director of the Digital Knowledge Center at the University of Mary Washington, a center that provides peer tutoring for students on digital projects at the university. And she’ll share how she works with faculty to offer support for students.

We’ll talk about everything from teaching and learning online, textbooks and open educational resources, and grading. Tune in!

When: Tuesday, May 28 at 4:00 p.m. ET/ 1:00 p.m. PT

Who: Jesse Stommel, director of the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies at University of Mary Washington.

Martha Burtis, director of the Digital Knowledge Center at the University of Mary Washington.
