Reminder of Upcoming Webinar on “Collective Scholarship for Public Pedagogy,” 6/22

A reminder of this event that may be of interest to some readers.

* Reminder to RSVP if you haven’t already * Hope to see you there! *

Webinar on COLLECTIVE SCHOLARSHIP FOR PUBLIC PEDAGOGY:
Reframing the Role of Educational Scholars in These Troubling Times

Wednesday, June 22, 2022
9:00-10:00am Hawai‘i / 12:00-1:00pm Pacific / 3:00-4:00pm Eastern
RSVP here
In the midst of so many attacks on and injustices in schools, universities, and beyond, we often wonder what we can do as educational scholars, what is to be our intervention in this moment, and what does it mean to do our work as part of larger movements.  For example, what can I do when my state passes a harmful law, my district is being threatened, or my university is complicit?Expanding on the theme of “Collective Scholarship for Public Pedagogy” for the upcoming 12th International Conference on Education and Justice, this webinar describes and offers tips for scholars acting collectively – that is, working collaboratively to leverage scholarship for public pedagogy that aims to raise critical consciousness.  We look at how to write collectively (ways to organize groups), how to write publicly (ways to reach the public, leaders, and the media), and how to write pedagogically (ways to reframe the narrative and reach larger audiences), with examples of current and recent groups and initiatives across the United States.  We conclude with lessons learned and concrete tips for either connecting with existing networks or forming new ones.

Designed for educational scholars but open to the public, this 1-hour webinar will be facilitated by Dr. Kevin Kumashiro.  The webinar is free but advanced registration is required.  The recording will be available on my website shortly after.  I look forward to seeing you!
