This book chapter explores what an education that challenges the reduction of human-animal relations to modes of production and consumption might look like in practice. Drawing on “Critical Animal Pedagogies: Re-Learning our Relations with Animal Others” (Gunnarsson Dinker & Pedersen 2016), which outlines a theoretical basis for critical animal pedagogy, the chapter seeks to delineate a critically reflective practice for transformative teaching and learning in the field of critical animal studies. Interwoven in the exploration are reflections on the authors' practical experiences in critical animal pedagogies, including primary and secondary school levels, as well as higher education.
