Entrenched inequity in the educational system will be the focus of a series of virtual professional development sessions hosted by Wright State University open to all educators and teacher candidates in the region.
Titled Equity in Education, the sessions will be held online on March 17, April 7, April 29, May 20 and June 10.
The sessions will examine schoolwide methods and strategies that have successfully promoted equity and inclusion. Topics include how to create anti-racist learning and how to better support diverse students academically and emotionally.
The sessions are organized by the Department of Teacher Education and the Office of Partnerships and Field Experiences in the College of Education and Human Services.
At least three additional follow-up series will be offered over the summer.
All sessions will take place online and require separate registration. Upon registering for each session, participants will receive the link for the session.
Certificates of attendance, including clock hours, will be emailed following each event. Optional graduate course credit is available to attendees upon completion of the requirements as stated within the syllabus.
