From the report:
Last week, we took Progressive Pedagogy on the road to two conferences in Vancouver: Digital Democracies at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and HASTAC’s Decolonizing Technologies, Reprogramming Education at the University of British Columbia (UBC).
On Thursday, May 16, Cathy N. Davidson, Erin Rose Glass, Christina Katopodis, Danica Savonick, and Siqi Tu led a workshop at SFU called, “The Classroom as Training Ground for Digital Democracy.”
Professor Cathy N. Davidson (GC CUNY) introduced the topic of the panel and gave a brief history of education in the U.S., which is largely still based on the 19th-century industrial education complex. Professor Davidson asked us to imagine a different classroom structure, one that could be a training ground for digital democracy. View her slides here.
