Equity and Care in Teaching & Learning
Creating an Equity and Care Ecosystem in Education
This session will focus on the importance of centering both Equity and care in educational institutions, and will unpack the intersections and levels of both. In order to center care and equity in classrooms, we need create ecosystems of care and equity within our institutions, and this session will explore ways of doing so and encourage participants to suggest solutions for their own context.
This event will be virtual. A link will be provided to all registered participants.
