This presentation discusses the possibilities of active/participatory pedagogy. The objective is to engage students to better understand the spatialities of local, regional, national and global issues with the goal of becoming responsible global citizens. To do so, a tactic called engaged discomfort is employed. This strategy involves encouraging students to move outside of their comfort zones and engage in the geographies/learning spaces of discomfiture, which include classroom activities, fieldwork, and community service.
