Reclaiming the Purpose of Teacher Education: Workshop & Q&A

A workshop, Q&A, and book signing with author and academic Dr. Nicole Mirra, Associate Professor of Urban Teacher Education at Rutgers University.

Rather than preparing educators to survive in the world as it is, what would it look like to support them to build the world that could be with students and communities? In this talk, Dr. Mirra proposes that we must deconstruct traditional norms and practices of K-12 and teacher education and imagine alternate models of teaching, learning, researching, loving, and dreaming in order to construct equitable democratic futures. Dr. Mirra's talk will offer a framework and strategies that invite collective imagining about the ethics, commitments, and practices that can guide our field forward with urgency and empathy.
