Power & Pedagogy in Higher Education – Journal #6

Courage

I will need it to change the things that I am convicted need to be changed. I will need it to be the army of one with an opinion that reflects my values.  I will need it to ensure congruence and eliminate contradiction between my profession and practice.  I will need it to extend the benefit of doubt and patient understanding to some who do not share my vision, my perspective and my aspirations.   I will need it to listen to you without judgement and see value in your voice.  I will need it to maintain the will to be heard and to combat indifference.  I will need it to acknowledge the climate I live in but to set the temperature in my own space.
