Critical Pedagogy is a teaching approach that helps students question and challenge domination and the beliefs and practices that dominate them.
It is Social Justice + Education.
The Critical Pedagogy Summit is coming together to co-teach and co-learn. It is distributed, open & collaborative. The summit is intended to meet the needs of digital interdisciplinary scholarship and practices. (View poster.)

"Indigenous people are writing. Writing is employed in a variety of imaginative, critical and also quite functional ways." (Smith, 1999, p.149)

“The importance of making connections and affirming connectedness has been noted also by other minority group researchers. Connectedness positions individuals in sets of relationships with other people and with the environment.” (Smith, 1999, p.148)
“Networking has become an efficient medium for stimulating information flows, educating people quickly about issues and creating extensive talking circles. Building networks is about building knowledge data bases which are based on the principles of relationships and connections.” (Smith, 1999, p. 156)
“Sharing knowledge between indigenous peoples, around networks and across the world of indigenous peoples. Sharing contains view of about knowledge being a collective benefit and knowledge being a form of resistance.” (Smith, 1999, p.160)
