Value personal knowledge

In critical pedagogy, individuals bring personal knowledge from their own lived experience; this expertise is valued as such. For example, a learner who has lived with chronic illness in their family brings this personal, lived experience, to the learning environment. This learner may have experiential and personal knowledge about the lived experience of chronic illness that may help ground and contextualize other learning.

Engaging with community in meaningful and mutual partnership also enables a valuing of multiple standpoints and personal knowledge.
