TEP invites faculty who teach—or are interested in teaching—courses that are part of UO’s new United States: Difference, Inequality, Agency undergraduate requirement into community for this celebratory event. We will share real teaching practices and activities linked to the US: DIA goals for student learning, distribute a new teaching guide to support faculty and graduate student teachers in this work, and highlight the importance of this teaching and learning at UO.

Best of all, the event will preview the annual College of Education UOTeach-In March 14, 2020. Dr Bettina Love, author of We Want to do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom, will keynote the March event. Leading up to it, UO faculty, alumni, and practicum partner school district staff will have the opportunity to join or lead their own study circles focused on Dr Love’s book or, if they choose, either UO Assistant Professor of Education Studies Leilani Sabzalian's book, Indigenous Children’s Survivance in Public Schools or Kevin Kumashiro’s Troubling Education: Queer Activism and Anti-Oppressive Pedagogy.

Join us to learn more and, if you’re interested, connect to a circle.
