EDUC 5005G - Social and Cultural Context of Education


This course will include sociological explorations of the social and cultural factors that have affected curriculum and the experience of education historically and in the current digital era. As discussions of power, privilege and socio-cultural 'difference' become increasingly common in popular culture, it is incumbent upon educators to understand how the web shapes and responds to normative views of curriculum and the learning experience. Students in this course will be asked to critically examine their own academic, professional and personal journeys in light of concepts introduced in the course readings. The investigative approach we will follow includes ethical reasoning, autobiographical reflection, deconstruction and sociological analysis of lived experiences and burning issues. This course will relate content and discussion to educational research in order to assist students in thinking about their own potential platforms for educational research.
Credit hours: 3
