Falling into an anti-racist pedagogical rabbit hole.
Mel Green considered how to apply her recent research into anti-racist pedagogy to her own teaching practice.
Educator | Researcher | Writer
Hi, I am Mel Green. I'm an Associate Lecturer and Doctoral Researcher at The Open University currently exploring how the intersections of Higher Education teachers' identities affect their pedagogical choices and beliefs.
I am a former primary school teacher and worked with children and young people from 1999 to 2015. I have two children, one of whom is autistic and the experience of being a parent of a child with a disability has led me to volunteer as a Trustee member of a charity created for disabled children and their families.
This site has been created to document my experiences of being both a lecturer and researcher. I am both a distance learning educator and a distance learning student. I believe that distance learning does not have to be isolating. For me, education is freedom. When we have the opportunity to learn and access information, we become free.
For students: This website and blog aim to provide regular study skills posts and links to interesting articles and videos to help distance learning students complete modules and degrees without feeling alone. I am looking forward to helping you on your learning journey.
For researchers and academics - This is a place where I share reflections on my research and practice. I would love to know your thoughts on my thoughts and connect with you in the future.
