Our work together at this one day intensive Institute will include looking at the importance of personal stories, along with the power of "dominant narratives." and how students can be a part of changing those narratives.

This Institute will combine theory with practical application around issues of racial, economic, and gender justice. How do we bring culturally relevant pedagogy and curricula to the classroom or program in a way that resonates with learners from all backgrounds, including non-neurotypical learners. How as educators can we be agents of change that challenge the status quo/systemic oppression not only in our classrooms and programs but also at our institutions? How can we combine ethnography, social justice, and social emotional learning in our lessons and units, and better yet, into the culture of our schools and organizations?  By walking through scenarios, group activities, not best but NEXT practices, and going beyond the buzzwords of our time, this Institute will equip you with concrete tools to help transform your classroom, program, and institution. This Institute is also part of our ongoing work to develop a network of like minded committed educators eager to learn from and support each other. learn more
