Focusing on the higher education learning environment, this volume illuminates the global relevance of critical and inclusive pedagogies (CIP), and demonstrates how their application can transform the teaching and learning process and promote more equitable educational outcomes among all students, but especially racially minoritized students. The examples in this book illustrate the importance of recognizing the detrimental impact of dominant ideologies, of evaluating who is being included in and excluded from the learning process, and paying attention to when teaching fails to consider students’ varying social, psychological, physical and/or emotional needs. This edited volume brings CIP into the realm of comparative education by gathering scholars from across academic disciplines and countries to explore how these pedagogies not only promote deep learning among students, but also better equip instructors to attend to the needs of diverse students by prioritizing their intellectual and social development; creating identity affirming learning environments that foster high expectations; recognizing the value of the cultural and national differences that learners bring to the educational experience; and engaging the “whole” student in the teaching and learning process.

    This is a great resource for those of us striving for inclusive excellence in our classrooms. I found that the introductory chapters offered concrete examples of what diversity and positionality look like in the higher ed classroom. The second part moves deeper into examining race contextually within our teaching, ourselves, and our students. Part three offers an examination of how transforming universities can transform communities. If you are grounded by hooks and Freire, this book will provid This is a great resource for those of us striving for inclusive excellence in our classrooms.

    A foundational collection of texts providing context, theoretical frameworks, practical examples of teaching and assessment strategies for thinking about and incorporating racial equity into higher education classrooms. The only piece missing for me was a contribution that focuses on STEM fields as difficult discussions too often are assumed to happen only in humanities or social sciences classes.
