Experiential learning in action-3D Pedagogy Framework and political sociology

The 3D Pedagogy Framework is a strategic model of inclusive teaching practice I developed to decolonize, democratize and diversify the curriculum in higher education.

In 2016, I developed a new 1st year politics undergraduate module based on 3D Pedagogy called Political Sociology, which ran for the first time this semester. Features developed for this unit include study groups to promote peer learning and continuous formative assessment.

Having already covered race, gender, religion, intersectionality and political engagement – the opportunity for one of the students, Nora Maganga, to take part in a filmed discussion for BBC News around race and racism in higher education provided the perfect opportunity for experiential learning.

The BBC report on race in academia aired on 7/12/18 on the six O’clock and ten O’clock news.
