Join tomorrow’s session facilitated by the Joint Chair in Women’s Studies at the University of Ottawa and Carleton University, Dr. Nadia Abu-Zahra, to learn about the evidence mounting against the “banking” or “transmission” model of learning (the predominant postsecondary education model which entails content, lectures, exams and grades).
“This open discussion session begins with some of the opportunities that can open up when we move beyond this model — with examples of learning experiences that are imaginative and collective. While the benefits of moving beyond the transmission model are proven, replicable, and readily experienced, the wider structures that impose hierarchies and exclusions continue to be replicated among us. This is where the questions continue: how can postsecondary education foster learning that lasts longer and relations that are sustained, sustaining, and accountable?”
