ICT0220 - What does it mean to educate for equity and diversity?

  • This seminar consists of two parts:

    1. A talk about enduring questions that continue to trouble the field of teacher education−what is worth examining and why? Professor Goodwin will then hone in on the perennial question of educating all children well−what does it mean to educate for equity and diversity? To address this key question, she will share findings from a recent study that illuminates how a master teacher's ways of thinking about her students, working with and engaging her students, and valuing her students, results in their achieving high levels of success.
    2. A localised discussion about educating for equity and diversity. Participants will identify challenges they face in relation to this issue, in local schools or their own practice, and have the opportunity to make personal and professional connections to the research and strategies presented in order to consider solutions and actions in response to these challenges.
  • Participants will be able to:

    • Identify local challenges in relation to the question of educating for diversity and equity
    • Make connections between these local concerns and the research and strategies presented
    • Articulate insights they have gained as well as possible solutions and future actions they would consider in response to these issues.
    1. Enduring questions and challenges in teaching and teacher education
    2. A case study of a master teacher’s practice: Mindsets, pedagogical principles and love
    3. Locally relevant issues and implications for school practice
