Embodied Learning in Perspective Transformations : Theoretical Considerations for Empowering Underserved Students in the time of COVID
A Talk by Shelbee NguyenVoges
Assoc. Prof & Program Director of the MA in Educational Innovations,
St. Edwards university
About this talk
In this talk, the author bring forth a novel discussion about the absence of embodiment theory as a tool in continuing and higher education contexts & how utility embodiment theory learning can be for these 21st learners. We then discuss why embodied learning is important to consider in reimagining fragmented historically quantitative understandings of adult, continuing, & higher education approaches. These ideas are extended further by considering ways that embodied learning is innovatively ideal for 21st century students, & how, more specifically, embodied learning meets the challenges uniquely felt by incoming underserved student populations continuing in adult and higher education contexts. Tentative applications and hypothetical programmatic offerings are included to bolster implications, invite discourse on limitations and as suggestion for future research.
