Description/Abstract: Guest Talk: De-Colonizing Teacher Education, with Limarys Caraballo, Danielle Filipiak, Lauren Kelly & Nicole Mirra, Wednesday, 4/25, 7:30-9pm

Join us for a CITED (Center for Innovation in Teacher Education and Development)-sponsored conversation on YPAR (Youth Participatory action Research) and teacher education!

What does it mean to engage in transformative teacher education? What are the contributions of YPAR and critical literacies to transforming teacher education? In this conversation, Limarys Caraballo, Danielle Filipiak, Lauren Kelly, and Nicole Mirra will discuss various projects and help us consider how critical literacies and youth participatory action research (YPAR), a radical effort in education research to value the inquiry-based knowledge production of the youth who directly experience the educational contexts that scholars endeavor to understand, can help us epistemologically, methodologically, and pedagogically transform teacher education.
