Service-Learning for Critical Consciousness Development

October 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Zoom Web Video Conference Call,

Service-Learning for Critical Consciousness Development: Moving away from a Charity Paradigm towards a Social Justice Paradigm A charity paradigm of service-learning emphasizes the importance of altruism and joy that comes from giving, whereas a social justice paradigm based on Critical Consciousness develops the capacity for service-learning projects to integrate how systems of power are created, maintained, and changed. This social justice paradigm of service-learning can play an important role in developing students’ skills, knowledge, and agency to create just social systems.  With the growth of social inequality, it is essential that educational institutions develop pedagogical models that equip students to address the root causes of social inequality.  This workshop explores the elements of Critical Consciousness, and how those elements can be used to deepen students’ capacity for social change through intentional service-learning experiences.    Facilitator: Tanden L. Brekke, Assistant Director of Service-Learning and Community Engagement, Bethel University Register for this Zoom web video conference call.
