This chapter presents social work education that democratises teaching and learning
practices by acknowledging the lived, professional and service use experiences of people in the class. Curriculum is democratised by connecting people in different locations, incorporating their specialist and professional knowledge in subject material and assessments, and utilising individual and collective experiences to enhance and contemporise content. The strategies outlined in this chapter incorporate and value the knowledge of all those in the class, facilitating their contributions. Critical reflection is central. This approach embodies epistemological justice, that is, all knowledge and experience is accepted as valid, enacting democratizing practices in the classroom.
