Black Perspectives and the Power of Education: Carlton Howson

Carlton outlines the power of education and the need to create safe spaces for engaging and challenging behaviours and barriers to learning. The process of learning requires interaction between the students to change perspectives and paradigms of reality. Students and their experiences should be the centre of the learning with them reflecting and analysing with assessments presented in a range of formats chosen by the students. It is crucial to develop students as co-creators of their courses and their assessments.
