Webinar: Transformative Learning in a Social Justice Oriented Language Classroom

October 3, 2020

Webinar presented by Stacey Margarita Johnson (Vanderbilt University).

Instructors building social justice into their language teaching often report that they hope their language classrooms will be sites of transformative learning and personal growth. As teachers, we want our teaching to make the world better and inspire students to become engaged citizens. Although we might hope for transformative learning, we don’t always know how it happens or how to guide our students through the process of transformation. This webinar will explore the steps in transformative learning, its connection to critical pedagogy and social justice, and, most importantly, ways language teachers can promote transformative learning through instructional choices that align with research and best practices in second language acquisition.

During the registration process, participants can request to receive a certificate of attendance for 1.5 hours of Continuing Education for attending the live event; or participants can request to receive a digital badge after the event.
