      Student-centered pedagogy: a workshop for innovative classroom practices focusing on collaboration, crowdsourcing, and experiential learning. What does peer learning look like across disciplines? What are the risks and rewards of a student-centered classroom? Join the Futures Initiative seminar, “Mapping the Futures of Higher Education” and members of the student-centered pedagogy group for a workshop on bringing peer learning techniques into the classroom. This participatory workshop will take place on March 10 from 4:15-6:15 in Room 9206 and will be live-streamed here:

      Please read the following texts and bring your syllabus.
      Required readings and brief assignment

      Ranciere, Jacques. “An Intellectual Adventure.” The Ignorant Schoolmaster: Five Lessons in

      Intellectual Emancipation. Stanford: Stanford University Press, 1991.

      Rogers, Carl R. “Questions I would ask myself if I were a teacher.”

      Davidson, Cathy. “Project Classroom Makeover.” Now You See It. New York: Penguin, 2011.

      After you’ve done the readings, please comment on this thread with responses to the following questions (ideally by the end of the day on Sunday 3/8 so that we can take them into account as we continue to plan the class):

      1. What student-centered approaches to learning do you use in the classroom?
      2. What questions and concerns do you have about student-centered pedagogy?
