10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
This learning track will explore how to invite students’ lived experiences into the classroom and into the world in a way that: promotes deep and nuanced learning in and out of the classroom; enables identification innovative solutions to collectively inherited problems; solidifies authentic connections, sense of belonging; and increases commitments to transformative action. The experiential follow up session is to work on putting theory into practice.
