EDUC-4702 Critical Pedagogy

One of the most significant Latin American contributions to world education is based on the critical pedagogy work of Paulo Freire. From a daring, radical acknowledgement of the relationship of political and education issues, critical pedagogy has question the purposes and the means of education by exploring the social role exercised. The work conducted by Freire and other critical pedagogy authors has continuously faced dilemmas and criticism from various intellectual or academic sectors, and from the society at large. Responses have been various and, therefore, at present we can observe a wide variety of critical pedagogy possibilities with internal tension. In this course, we will try to, from a permanent reflection on the practice and theory of the critical pedagogy, understand, learn and act upon our daily tasks pertaining to education.
