Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The presentations in this symposium examine the scholarly traditions that have informed how praxis is understood and exercised, promote the need for critical scholars to move beyond problematization to practical engagement with local pedagogical projects, and demonstrate the need for persistent negotiation with constraints/affordances and competing expectations in educational contexts. Paper titles include: 1) Reexamining and Reenvisioning Criticality in Language Studies: Theories and Praxis;
2) Processfolio: Uniting academic literacies and critical emancipatory action research for practitioner-led inquiry into EAP writing assessment;
and 3) Criticality as ideological becoming: Developing English teachers for critical pedagogy in Nepal
