Teaching Democracy is a training and web platform for Tufts students, faculty, and community partners to build their capacity in popular and community-based education methods.


It was developed by a design team of faculty, staff, students, and community partners, toward the goal of sustaining a community of popular and community-based educators and as a resource for members of the Tufts community who want to learn about and integrate these methods into their teaching and research. Teaching Democracy is hosted by the Tufts University Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning and supported by the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life and a Tufts Innovates grant from the Office of the Provost.

We invite you to use and share these resources to support your own and others’ popular education work.  And please get in touch with us if you would like to contribute additional resources to this site.
