Embedding a culturally responsive pedagogy in our everyday practice with Aminul Hoque

Aminul discussed three key questions: do we really know who our students are? Are we aware of the wider social, community and cultural issues that many of our students are living through? And finally, how do we get to know our students and ensure that their views, interests, lived experiences, aspirations inform and guide our pedagogical practices?
