Overview of New Pedagogies for Social Change

This introduction discusses major current challenges in achieving equity, diversity, and democratic access to higher education. It covers new pedagogies in institutions of higher learning that build upon the lived experiences and resources of working-class and historically underrepresented students. Various models for teaching and learning are proposed — from activism in the academy to community/university reciprocity — all of which are based on reflection, praxis, and critical thinking.
