Item description for Pedagogies of Praxis: Course-Based Action Research in the Social Sciences (JB - Anker) by Nila Ginger Hoffman & Howard Rosing...
This book is about building public interest partnerships between institutions of higher education and local community-based organizations. It is not a how-to guide, but rather a compilation of case studies that discusses the implications, successes, and failures of such partnerships. In particular, this book documents the ways in which course-based action research (CBAR) within the social sciences functions as an effective resource for establishing and reinforcing partnerships among students, academic officers, and local communities. Students and faculty, guided through CBAR, learn how to develop advocacy strategies for marginalized communities through firsthand exposure to local-level politics and power imbalances in these communities.
