Teaching for Transformation: International Forum on Liberating Pedagogies. Conference in Vancouver, BC. April 12-13.
Immediately before the AERA annual meeting in Vancouver, BC, the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation will be hosting a conference organised by the Initiative for Democratic Education in the Americas. The conference will take place on the 12 and 13 April and will be located at BCTF’s headquarters in Vancouver.
The Conference is an opportunity for educators, researchers and students from throughout the Americas to share approaches and experiences of democratic pedagogies in public education that empower students as subjects of change, equity and social justice. The event will also include special guests from Europe and Asia.
Please see below for further details, a letter of invitation and a registration form.
Further details, and completed Registration forms should be addressed to Steve Stewart (Technical Secretary, IDEA).
We are hoping that many of the delegates to the conference will be able to attend Teachers’ Work/Teacher Unions SIG events at the annual meeting – thus enriching the discussions we have there.
In turn, we hope many SIG members will be able to attend the pre-AERA conference. The SIG is not an official sponsor of the conference, but we have been included in planning discussions and we are extremely supportive of the initiative. Taken together, these two events provide a great opportunity for SIG members to participate in what promises to be an exceptional programme of workshops and discussions.
[Please note - the IDEAs event is free, but early registration is strongly recommended as places are limited].
