3D Pedagogy Framework™

©Black British Academics


The 3D Pedagogy Framework™ is a strategic model of inclusive teaching practice developed by Dr Deborah Gabriel through Black British Academics® to decolonize, democratize and diversify the higher education curriculum.  It targets education practice to enhance the experience and outcomes for students of colour while enriching the learning process for students of all ethnic backgrounds. This framework is informed by both quantitative and qualitative research (see below). Findings from data collected from  global participants suggest that 3D Pedagogy™ is an effective approach to enhance the cultural competence of education practitioners and promote critical reflective practice; important steps towards transforming the higher education curriculum and student learning experience.
