10. Juli 2019 | Ahmed Allahwala (University of Toronto)Re-imagining geography education through community service learning and participatory action research ♦ Didaktische Ringvorlesung

This lecture is a critical reflection of a decade of sustained community-engaged geography undergraduate education, offered in collaboration with social service agencies in the Kingston-Galloway/Orton Park and Malvern neighbourhoods in Toronto’s inner suburbs. Situated within the broader historical context of increasing socio-spatial polarization and the rise of place-based policy responses to combat neighbourhood inequality in Toronto, this lecture interrogates the challenges and opportunities of engaging undergraduate geography students in neighbourhood-based research and service learning projects. Empirically grounded in my experience teaching an introductory seminar in community-based research, I argue that participatory action research (PAR) is a productive framework for envisioning pedagogical spaces that integrate justice-oriented notions of community action and civic engagement with democratic approaches to geography education.

Professor Allahwala is an urban policy analyst and community-based geographer focusing on issues of urban social policy, neighbourhood-based policy interventions, community development and youth engagement in Toronto’s inner suburbs. His current research explores the potential of service learning and participatory action research as innovative approaches in geography (undergraduate) education. Professor Allahwala has taught a variety of community-engaged courses and been a key advocate of community-engaged learning and campus-community collaboration at the University of Toronto. He has recently been appointed Special Advisor to the Dean on Experiential Education to provide academic leadership on building and sustaining experiential learning partnerships at his institution
