Humility in critical STS pedagogies

One theme that came across to me in the two sessions from today -- "Teaching and Thinking With Disabilities" and "We Are Screwing Up and Sticking With It" -- was the reflexivity and humility involved in practicing critical STS pedagogies. Disciplinary humility, epistemic humility, pedagogical humility. This probably arises in part from the interdisciplinary and critical orientations of this work, which is challenging, fraught, and full of failures. But it is also about positionality within structures of teaching and learning, teaching as a practice of learning with and alongside.
