Researching Virtually: Toward a Critical and Sustainable Writing Pedagogy
Juland Dayo Salayo (University of the Philippines, Diliman, Philippines)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-9072-3.ch014
This authentic classroom narrative is a product of a drastic paradigm in classroom teaching, specifically in the conduct of research, which demands sustaining academic writing technicalities. However, integrating critical pedagogy seamlessly works with virtual researching as learners maintain active engagement through penetrating the social realities present in the walls of their virtual world. Understanding their society shapes and affects their learning experiences and becomes more meaningful and radical through problem-posing, conscientization, and dialogic engagement. The student-centered, informal, and action-driven approach allowed the learners to freely produce new knowledge following the methodologically influenced approaches of virtual researching. Authentic knowledge solves those identified problems through plans, and proposals to invite critical and sustainable actions. This shared narrative invites the ideas of critical and sustainable writing pedagogy necessary to activate learners' interest in the virtual world as they participate in positive social change.
