*Please bring a WiFi-enabled device to the session! Too often classrooms replicate rather than overcome society’s oppressive structures. This is the world as it is. This is true even in student-centered learning environments. How, then, do we create and facilitate learning environments that help us move away from the world as it is and toward the world as it should be? This workshop will support participants to think about how to reclaim student-centered learning environments as places of deeper liberation, love, and learning. Inspired by research about the pedagogy of teacher activism and supporting teachers to develop anti-racist philosophies and practice, the session will have three parts: 1) using Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed techniques to engage with Gloria Anzaldúa’s ideas of “choques” and “la facultad” in the context of student-centered learning principles in practice; 2) deepening our engagement with Theatre of the Oppressed to imagine the kinds of change that allow all students to flourish; and 3) applying these learnings to the current revamp of the Students at the Center principles (https://studentsatthecenterhub.org/interactive-framework/).
