Great Title, Good Content, But People Please Watch The Vocabulary.
FairerScience friend David Mortman recently sent us a link to Feminist Cyborgs:
Teaching like a Feminist in the Computer Classroom. This transcript of a workshop is quite interesting, talking about issues related to feminist instruction/pedagogy as well as ways to use technology to create "different circuits of authority in the classroom” and to make assessments "on the basis of what students demonstrate they know and can do.” Those interested in instruction should take a look at it.
However it might be best if you skip the first page and a half. Sentences like:
"…critical teachers may find ways to sponsor infidel heteroglossia: multi-accentuated languages inside and outside of educational institutions that critique androcentric narratives or hegemonic
interpretations of everyday experience that deny the oppression of women and stifle hope for social change.”
scare me. They scare me a lot and make me worry if we are ever going to be able to effectively communicate our work to anyone other than each other.
