Abstract

Georgia Southern University faculty members Sabrina N. Ross and Alma Stevenson co-authored "When Walking the Walk Changes the Talk: Using Critical Reflection to Inform Practices of Social Justice Education and Social Justice Research" in Promoting Social Justice through the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

Book Summary: How can education become a transformative experience for all learners and teachers? The contributors to this volume contend that the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) can provide a strong foundation for the role of education in promoting social justice. The collection features contributions by an array of educators and scholars, highlighting the various ways that learners and teachers can prepare for and engage with social justice concerns. The essays offer reflections on the value of SoTL in relation to educational ethics, marginalized groups, community service and activism, counter narratives, and a range of classroom practices. Although the contributors work in a variety of disciplines and employ different theoretical frameworks, they are united by the conviction that education should improve our lives by promoting equity and social justice.
