Transformative Pedagogy: A Twenty-first Century Perspective Towards Improving Education

Abstract

Education in the twenty-first century needs to break existing boundaries and adopt a new blend of teaching to meet the evolving demands of students. The need for teachers to unlearn methods of teaching that were consistently being used over the last few years and move towards perceiving not just education, but their role as well, in a different way, lies at the crux of this paper. This paper critiques the current form of teaching and learning happening in institutions and emphasizes the need for a shift in this structure, outlining methods that are more likely to be effective in the twenty-first century. The methodology used to gather information for this paper was a survey of different people associated with the education sector. The research sample included students, parents, teachers, and other stakeholders in the education process. It followed a qualitative and quantitative approach towards obtaining information to prove that there needs to be a transformation in the pedagogical approaches towards education in the twenty-first century.
