In this blog, Sydney Church (the Centre’s Research and Learning Officer), focuses on the concept of a ‘pedagogy of discomfort’ to explore how disruptive feelings and emotions can offer valuable insight into evaluation across the youth sector.
At their Annual Gathering in September, The Centre for Youth Impact hosted a workshop on “Equality and Equity in Evaluation: Applying an Identity Lens”. During a morning and afternoon session, we listened to writer, cultural producer and an award-winning arts educator, Farzana Khan; researcher Julie Temperley; and educational researcher and consultant Nusrat Faizullah discuss and explore their perspectives on the topic.
At the Gathering 2018 Rashid Iqbal, CEO of The Winch, spoke as part of a panel titled 'Reframing power, impact and change: the role of quality, voice and collective action'. This blog provides an abridged version of Rashid's speech, where he discusses how focusing on The Winch's mission statement "provokes questions about the processes of knowledge creation and evaluation, and the nature of power between the child, worker and institution(s)."
