Dear Social Justice Educators,
For the past four years the UOTeach Oregon teacher licensure program has partnered with units across the UO campus as well as with Bethel, Springfield, Eugene 4J, and Lane ESD to provide ongoing professional development on culturally responsive and culturally sustaining pedagogies.
Our faculty and teacher candidates engage in this work through a series of graduate courses on culturally responsive pedagogies which culminate in a one day conference, the UOTeach-In on Equity and Anti-Oppressive Pedagogies. For this academic year, the UOTeach-In will take place on March 14, 2020.
The 2020 UOTeach-In keynote speaker will be Dr. Bettina Love, author of We Want to do More Than Survive: Abolitionist teaching and the pursuit of educational freedom. In addition the UOTeach-In will provide three workshop tracks:
- decolonizing teaching,
- anti-racist (CRT) and LGBTQ inclusive (QP) teaching,
- abolitionist teaching.
UO faculty, UOTeach teaching candidates, and k-12 faculty will attend the workshops to explore and expand their knowledge of anti-oppressive curriculum and instruction.Thank you as well for supporting UOTeach students entering the field of teaching.
Julia Heffernan, Ph.D.
Graduate Director of UOTeach/TeachIN Coordinator
