Symposium

How can writing pedagogies build critical thinking among students in higher education?

The two-day symposium is organized by the Undergraduate Writing Programme at Ashoka University, in partnership with Sage, to explore writing pedagogies and how these can deepen the thinking of students in higher education.

It offers a space for the higher education community in India to converse about their teaching practices and challenges, consider questions about social justice and equity arising from their work, and understand the range of approaches and tools used in writing programmes, including those that have arisen within the context of liberal arts universities in South Asia. Works such as Debaditya Bhattacharya’s volume on The Idea of the University: Histories and Contexts, Aniket Jaaware’s The Silence of the Subaltern Student, and the Cafe Dissensus Issue 50 on Writing in Academia, edited by Anannya Dasgupta and Madhura Lohokare provide a helpful frame for this discussion. The hope is that each of us will leave the symposium with the enthusiasm to explore new pedagogies in our classrooms and, along with our students, to become part of an ever-expanding community of peers.
