Curriculum for Justice and Harmony: Deliberation, Knowledge, and Action in Social and Civic Education
Li-Ching Ho, Ph.D.
Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction
School of Education, UW-Madison
How do we prepare young people to work for a better world? The time is right for a new way of thinking about civic education curricula in different educational contexts, including higher education. In this book talk, Dr. Ho presents a global vision for education, one that can guide students in the pursuit of societal justice and harmony. Drawing from diverse philosophical and cultural traditions, including Confucian and Indigenous philosophies, as well as empirical research, she introduces three curriculum principles designed to motivate and inform students’ thoughtful and compassionate deliberation of public issues.
This event is free and open to the public. A recording of the talk will be available on the CSEAS YouTube channel following the event.
