AbstractRecently some engineering educators have introduced liberative pedagogies (including feminist and critical pedagogies) in their classrooms. These pedagogies promise to impact student interest, motivation, and performance as they create democratic classrooms that encourage all voices, grounding learning in the authority of student experience. The author discusses the intent of liberative pedagogies to help students develop critical thinking skills and reflective action, and discusses an assessment tool that uses weblog (blog) technology to measure student learning as well as enhance it, encouraging reflection and enabling students to connect classroom content with personal experience.
