What We Do
What is Engaged Pedagogy?
Engaged pedagogy transforms education into a collaborative, holistic practice of knowledge cultivation that redefines what teaching and learning can mean. At the CEP, we explore the possibilities of education as an active process through which students and faculty can experience mutual growth and empowerment and establish meaningful relationships between class material and their daily lives.
At the CEP, we do not separate faculty teaching support from student learning support. Rather, we approach teaching and learning as joint processes that inform the Barnard community as a whole. We are committed to inclusive and innovative pedagogical practices that acknowledge diverse ways of knowing, forms of expertise, and academic pathways. Centering this approach, we intend to reimagine pedagogical scholarship and center our own community’s expertise to generate new teaching and learning. Our goal is to prepare Barnard specifically—and higher education more broadly—to critically engage and transform our ever-changing world..
