Habits of Hand

What do we do?
How do we act on our beliefs & values?

As a theory rather than a set of strategies, feminist pedagogy doesn’t “automatically preclude any technique or approach” (not even lecture) but instead highlights “the relationship that specific techniques have to educational goals” (Shrewsbury 14). In other words, its habits of hand take many forms, though they all express its habits of head and heart–an alignment that helps us maintain a critical awareness of our actions and a commitment to our goals. This intentional alignment occurs from the macro level (course design, learning environment) to the micro (specific classroom activities and assignments).
