COVID-19 Seminar and Resources. Overcoming the socio-economic ills of the pandemic
Updated: Sep 5
Go to the social action and intervention, community education, and legacy website of our Summer Session 1 2020 online graduate class, LHA1148: Introduction to Workplace, Organizational, and Economic Democracy. This version of the course was subtitled "the COVID-19 edition". The course took place during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic and socio-economic crisis, between May-June 2020. It was offered as a full credit, graduate level course in the Program in Adult Education and Community Development (AECD) at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (OISE/UT). Designed and taught by Prof. Marcelo Vieta, the course took on as its main contextual theme the economic and social ills caused by the emerging COVID-19 pandemic and how the proposals and practices of economic democracy can respond to the crisis. This website and the learning that took place in the course was co-constructed in a spirit of collaborative learning by the 36 graduate students that took the course, the instructor, and the two invited lecturers, M. Derya Tarhan and Lisa Mychajluk.
