The Need for a Humanizing Pedagogy: A Conversation with Dr. Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales

By Connie Tan

For the past 17 years, Dr. Tintiangco-Cubales has been teaching in the Asian American Studies Department with a focus on community responsive pedagogy, culturally responsive teaching and evaluation, and Filipina/o/x American Studies. In this interview, Dr. Tintiangco-Cubales encourages faculty, staff, and administrators to examine and understand the structures that create inequities in the CSU system, develop specific and clear equity goals and antiracist campus plans, understand the wealth of knowledge that students bring to campus by actively listening to what they say about their needs and perspectives, and take actions to address student concerns, including implementing a humanizing pedagogy.
