Facilitating dialogue in development education
(fair-minded) critical thinking?
Is it really possible?
How can we be open to opposing points of view and maintain a commitment to our values of fairness and equality?
Do we lose our purpose if we start to critique the things we believe in?
Experience from Practice
How can dominant ideological assumptions be challenged, in a way that allows social justice values be upheld without guiding the learners too much, or telling them how to act or think?
How can we find the balance between an input of accurate information and the creation a safe space to explore the information?
