Pedagogical Innovations in International Development

Issued on


In this EADI talk, Anke Schwittay presents the outlines of a critical-creative pedagogy she has developed in response to her own students who often feel disillusioned and cynical when encountering hyper-critical teaching. Through whole-person learning, the use of design and arts methods and praxis, this pedagogy aims to equip students with critical hope to use their knowledge, orientations and politics to imagine heterodox ways of responding to today’s challenges.

Anke Schwittay is Professor of Anthropology and Global Development at the University of Sussex in the UK. She is the author of Creative Universities: Reimagining Education for Global Challenges and Alternative Futures, which draws on her 20 years of teaching experiences in International Development in the US, New Zealand and the UK. Read her paper "Teaching critical hope with creative pedagogies of possibilities".
