Sean Michael Morris, Sara Camacho Felix, Dustin Hosseini, and Lee-Ann Sequeira further explore the role of critical digital pedagogies in the shift to online learning and assessment.
Welcome to The Common Room, a series of podcasts by the LSE Higher Education Blog. Today’s podcast is an extension of the workshop, More Than A Pivot: Thinking Critically About Our Pedagogy, that was hosted by the Digital Education Network and the Institute for Curriculum Enhancement at Lancaster University and the LSE Higher Education Blog at the LSE Eden Centre for Education Enhancement. This podcast will continue the conversation on how we can practice and enact pedagogy critically during this online pivot.
We have four panellists: Sean Michael Morris, Senior Instructor of Learning, Design, and Technology in the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Colorado, Denver. He is also the Director of the Digital Pedagogy Lab and has authored and contributed to many books and publications on critical digital pedagogy; Sara Camacho Felix, Assistant Professorial Lecturer for the Atlantic Fellows in the Social and Economic Equity Programme at the International Inequalities Institute at the LSE, and also a member of the LSE Decolonising Collective; Dustin Hosseini, Digital Education Facilitator in the School of Management at Lancaster University, and Lee-Ann Sequeira, Academic Developer at the LSE Eden Centre for Education Enhancement and the Editor of the LSE Higher Education Blog.
Does it turn the students into an unwitting data point in the surveillance capitalism economy?
How can we convince colleagues to engage with digital pedagogies or digital education?
We're not just being sold a tool, we're being sold an anxiety.

If we don't use this time where we're forced to change … we're just going to entrench these inequalities deeper
