Theme: Integrating Critical Pedagogy into Online Labs

Questions to Ponder

  • What struck you from today's vidcast or readings? Any Aha's?
  • What specific considerations do we need to make when we apply critical pedagogy in F2F labs? In online labs? In research labs?
  • What kinds of power structures exist in labs? Why do these exist? How do they manifest?
  • How do we share power in these spaces?
