SUMMARY: Developing a Pedagogy Matters Manifesto

February 20, 2011

From Michael Dubson

The following is a summary of this discussion from 9:00 to 12:00 this morning. This is a tough one to summarize because it is not only a lot of ideas, but those ideas are flowing into the creation of a document. I didn’t want to simply rewrite the document, and the flow of ideas is cumulative into its creation–so I will try to capture the ideas using alternate langauge. Here goes:

1. A well educated population is necessary for the sucessful function of a democratic society.

2. Commitment to education is critical for prosperity of local, state, national and global communities.

3. Teachers must be commited to excellent teaching, show intentionality and transparency in pedagogy, and develop and display passion for the classroom experience.

4. Students who get into college level courses are more likely to graduate.

5. College faculty know it’s all about the students; students must be kept at the forefront of all activires.

6. Professional development is crucial to reinvigorate teachers; teachers must reflect upon classroom pratcie. Engaged teachers will continue to improve the educational experience for students.

7. Advance pedagogy for graduate education in regards to teaching developmental students

8. We must educate ourselves in how to present ourselves to students, families, voters, politicians and the media.

9. We must participate in the democratic process in our work.

10. We must pledge to work for the good of the whole student both in the classroom and through college services.

11. Part-time faculty must be included in the discussion of faculty

12. More full-time jobs must be created, qualified and dedicated part-time faculty should be given those jobs, and teachers should be respectfully compensated.

13. “Regular teachers” need to be involved in the polticial process, not having it just left to unions, administrators and city and state officials.

That’s a lot–some of these ideas are already incorporated in the emerging document, others are still caught up in the composing/revision process.

Newswire #75 | Jobs for the Future: Jamming On Developmental Education

More than 140 people participated in the seven-hour event, discussing, for instance, what floor (if any) should be established for determining whether students get admitted into developmental or Adult Basic Education—and why so many practitioners advocate for a floor even when they dislike the idea of limiting some students’ options.
