Being Critical of the System While Teaching Inside It: Lecture versus Discussion Formats Ira Educators in formal classrooms have one place for making critical culture, for criticizing the system from inside. But, traditional teachers may claim that they are illuminating reality also. They give informed lectures about their subject. The expert teacher speaks and the students copy down what they hear. From the traditional point of view, who is best-informed and thus best-qualified to do illumination, than the teacher?

They are experiencing the things we need to study. Changing Through Experience: Teachers Learn With and From Students Ira Learning from reality is important, but more than just 'going to reality,' you accepted worker-students as your teachers. That adds political depth to 'experiential' learning, which is a common idea in progressive education. The teacher learns from the students and the academic professor is informally educated by workers. This agenda is different from the traditional curriculum, and more democratic than simple student-centered teaching.

The participants then report their initial thoughts to each other in small groups, after which I convene the whole body to hear each group's deliberation. This dialogic method systematically invites students or audiences to think critically, to co-develop the session with the 'expert' or 'teacher,' and to construct peer-relations instead of authority-dependent relations. Also, reversing the lecture-discussion format allows me to do in-process research into the group I am teaching for or speaking with, so that I can shape my language and analysis to fit the situation.
