Proposal Abstract

Emancipatory Leadership is premised upon connecting self-awareness with tools for overcoming barriers to inclusion at the personal, inter-personal and organizational levels. Some of these are implicit whereas other are more structural in nature. A key factor to effective teaching is the ability to establish psychological safety within the learning environment. In order to accomplish, it is imperative that both teachers and learners abandon their comfort zones wherein few risks are taken. In contrast, a safe space is where the learner can connect with and share their lived experiences, their unshared aspirations, and even their current barriers. Such a space allows them to leverage the richness and nuance of what they bring to the learning experience, thereby allowing them to co-create a successful teaching and learning encounter. This case-driven, interactive session will address how effectively creating a safe space allows instructors to be open and even a little vulnerable with learners. Furthermore, it explores how such an approach is essential to creating a truly inclusive environment that leverages reciprocity. Specifically, the Student Consultant Model will outline how instructors can best integrate student voices for greater impact. It will also address how students can be developed as contributors through a guided mastery approach into being contributors to a learning environment that culminates in further developing their cultural fluency skills.

Statement

This session will add to the 'connection, engagement and exploration' theme in that the critical lens to a more inclusive pedagogical model enables both dialogue amongst faculty members as well as with students as consultants.
