Dear Social Justice Educators,
NEW DATE: February 27, 2021
For the past five years the UOTeach Oregon teacher licensure program has partnered with units across the UO campus as well as with Bethel, Eugene 4J, Springfield, 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.
The much anticipated, 2020/21 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:
- abolitionist teaching
- decolonizing teaching
- anti-oppressive and LGBTQ inclusive (QP) 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
