Engaged Pedagogy, Andragogy & Evaluation for Sexuality Professionals

April 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT

$80.00 – $180.00

This three-part series invites participants to reflect on, identify and engage their own teaching philosophy in a transformative way which centers the wholeness and humanity of the learning community. Building on this, participants will examine and question ways in which to apply their teaching philosophy in virtual learning spaces, while integrating a sustainable and mutually informing evaluation of practice.

Part I: Pedagogy & Teaching (hours 1 & 2)


The goal of this class is to discuss pedagogy, andragogy, and approaches to offering sexuality education from an interdisciplinary approach. Participants will reflect on their own experiences as participant and educator and work on their teaching philosophy.

Learning Objective:

This course will invite a discussion of engaged pedagogy and andragogy for sexuality educational spaces with recognizing wholeness as the guiding principle..

Learning Outcomes:

  • Discover and identify pedagogical / androgogical approaches to offering sexuality education
  • Build a teaching philosophy
  • Identify which frameworks guide our teaching

Essential Questions:

  • What pedagogical / andragogical approaches may I consider offering in my sexuality education courses?
  • What is my teaching philosophy? How do I construct my teaching philosophy?
  • What frameworks guide my teaching?


Part II: Live Virtual Teaching (Synchronous teaching) (hours 3 & 4)


The goal of this class is to discuss pedagogy / andragogy and approaches to offering sexuality education virtually. Participants will reflect on their own experiences as participant and educator, examine power in teaching and knowledge production, and troubleshoot the surveillance that is embedded in virtual teaching and learning that is both synchronous and asynchronous.

Learning Objective:

This class offers a discussion on the differences and approaches to virtual sexuality educational offerings with body autonomy and collective liberation as core principles.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify and utilize pedagogical / andragogical approaches to virtual / online teaching and learning
  • Examine surveillance approaches and how to remove them from virtual spaces

Essential Questions:

  • How is virtual pedagogy / andragogy different from my in-person offerings?
  • What forms of surveillance am I expected to uphold in the virtual classroom?
  • How do I create experiences divested from surveillance?

Part III: Sustainable Evaluation & Feedback (hours 5 & 6)


Learning Objective:

Participants will examine the types of evaluation processes that can take place before, during and after an offering. Building on that, participants will develop a strategy to evaluate their practice which is transformative using accountability, trauma responsive practices, self-compassion, and a radical approach to care.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify the importance of evaluation for continued updated offerings
  • Utilize evaluation as a core component of education and pedagogy
  • Prepare for receiving and offering feedback
  • List possibilities and challenges of evaluation

Essential Questions:

  • Why is evaluation important?
  • What do we learn when we do an evaluation?
  • How do we prepare to receive and offer feedback?
