An Urgency of Teachers: The Work of Critical Digital Pedagogy


“Critical Pedagogy is an approach to teaching and learning predicated on fostering agency and empowering learners.”

An Urgency of Teachers is in the RDC Library

An Urgency of Teachers: The Work of Critical Digital Pedagogy is a collection of essays by Sean Michael Morris (@slamteacher) and Jesse Stommel (@jessifer).

In this collection, the authors explore a multitude of themes, including online learning, educational technology, social justice, open education, plagiarism, instructional design, and teaching online. These bite-sized thought-provoking essays provide food for thought and serve as a springboard for dialogue with both instructors and students.

The authors discuss An Urgency of Teachers on the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast. Listen Now!

The authors have made available an open-access version.
