Pedagogies of Invitation

Pedagogies of Invitation

From Status-Quo Stories to Cosmic Connections

(p.167) Chapter Six Pedagogies of Invitation
Transformation Now!

AnaLouise Keating

University of Illinois Press

This chapter calls for and attempts to enact alternatives to critical pedagogy. More specifically, it explores the implications of positing interconnectivity as a framework for invitational pedagogies and relational models of identity. Language, belief, perception, and action are intimately interwoven. All too often, however, we (educators and students) assume that our perceptions and beliefs accurately reflect the entire truth about reality and ourselves; such assumptions narrow, limit, and restrict our worldviews and inhibit our actions. After examining the crucial role self-enclosed individualism plays in sustaining racism and other forms of social injustice, this chapter uses indigenous science and womanist thought to develop transformative pedagogical models, or “pedagogies of invitation;” invitational pedagogies are nonoppositional and require intellectual humility, flexibility, and an open-minded attitude.

Keywords:   critical pedagogy, invitational pedagogy, interconnectivity, identity, individualism, social injustice, indigenous science, womanist thought, transformative pedagogical models
