Participants will examine the many ways in which race and ethnicity matter in teaching and learning, and explore how to design educational settings in which all students can learn from each other.
The facilitated small-group dialogue session is a space for participants to deepen their learning through group dialogue and individual reflection. Similar to school homeroom, each group comprises diverse participants who meet daily. Through activities facilitated by Teachers College doctoral students, participants explore how insights gained from workshops and plenaries will actively inform their practice in education. Participants will be encouraged to engage in critical conversations in order to challenge assumptions and spark innovation for their work moving forward. By Thursday, participants will emerge with a plan to put new learning into action in their unique professional context.
