Your Name and Title:   Dana Cole 

School or Organization Name:  Harold Washington College 

Co-Presenter Name(s):  

Area of the World from Which You Will Present:   Chicago, Illinois USA 

Language in Which You Will Present: English 

Target Audience(s):  Educators, Administrators, even students 

Short Session Description (one line):  I will be discussing my film on globalizing education

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

In this presentation I will discuss my current research and film project that investigates ideas around knowing.  The film is both an investigation of international and cross-cultural knowledge perspectives as well as a questioning of Western influence and domination.  In this sense this work enters the postcolonial conversation that is echoed today in many fields.

  • As educators we may think we are representing our students, teaching to their lives, connecting content to their lived experiences, yet our recent history has been to teach theories from dominant viewpoints, theories that speak from social positions that our students often do not share, perspectives that have led to oppression, repression, silencing and erasure. Chicago’s educational system is characterized by diverse populations, native born as well as immigrant students.  Given this diversity, we as educators must begin to think and teach and live outside these dominant perspectives if we seek social, cultural and knowledge representation by and for all.

 

  • We must dismantle the epistemological monopoly that has existed for too long and the inequality and erasure it has enabled and reified if we want to generate knowledge and understandings that reflects diversity, representation and equality in an inclusive world. Using a pedagogical approach, which I have termed borderzone pedagogy(Cole, 2017), we can educate our youth to begin seeing and doing in ways that dismantle the epistemological power structures and hence the institutions in which inequalities have been put into practice.  In this process we must begin to listen to our students as the creative, innovative, forward thinking contributors to social change, and learn from them.


Websites / URLs Associated with Your Session:  Should this be something I have created specifically for this session?  If not I am including the website associated with the film (which is in progress) 

I have included a film summary for a grant proposal for more detailed description.
