Cultural Competence: Discovering a New Lens
This interactive workshop will help to promote higher degrees of student engagement, productivity, and innovation as you cultivate equity-centered teaching that champions inclusivity and diversity. As student populations become increasingly diverse, schools are re-examining their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies and priorities. This PD is for those who want to learn more about striving for a culture that values differences, builds trust, practices empathy, shifts mindsets, encourages differing voices, transforms behaviors, and uplifts the well-being of students through the implementation of strategies that intentionally produce a more diverse, equitable and inclusive educational environment. In addition to delving deeper into culturally responsive and inclusive teaching, attendees will be able to gain insight from industry experts, experience a customized offsite tour, and receive interactive demonstrations of new classroom-ready resources related to equitable access and opportunity.
- Explore tools that encourage diversity, equity, and inclusion in schools.
- Examine culturally responsive resources and classroom materials.
- Learn how to intentionally incorporate inclusive teaching strategies and culturally responsive pedagogy.
There is no cost to attend but advance registration is required.
We look forward to you joining us this summer.
Note: A certificate of completion will be provided to attendees. This learning opportunity will be hosted in partnership with the Center for Economic Education at Emporia State University (ESU). For Kansas and Missouri teachers, more depth, and a graduate credit option of 1.0 hour will be available from ESU. Moreover, some scholarship funds may be available to help offset some of the ESU graduate tuition for both Kansas and Missouri K-12 educators.
