Registration and date is TBA
On behalf of the Indigenous Teacher Education Program, (ITEP) you are invited to the 2-day Spring 2021 Inaugural Conference, Mobilizing Decolonial Praxis. Hear from UA ITEP alumni who are currently teachers and teacher candidates currently in the program.
The conference, Indigenous Teacher Education: Mobilizing Decolonial Praxis, will premiere critical Indigenous education efforts that mobilize a decolonial praxis in schools and communities serving Indigenous students. The goals of the conference are to:
1) share ITEP teachers’ efforts in indigenizing and decolonizing curriculum and pedagogy;
2) contextualize the ways in which educators develop a critical Indigenous consciousness that engages justice-centered pedagogies; and
3) create opportunities for participants to engage in critical dialogues that furthers the goal of mobilizing decolonial praxis.
Our goal in ITEP is to prepare Indigenous teachers to engage in transformative teaching and learning practices that consider the unique cultural and political contexts of Indigenous communities. ITEP supports educators in developing curriculum that is driven by historical and contemporary issues impacting Indigenous communities to cultivate the next generation of critical Indigenous educators.
