Our campus community is invited and encouraged to join us on Friday, October 28th in M100 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm to participate in an important talk from guest lecturer, Dr. Lakia Scott. Please register on Eventbrite here.
Under the research framework of providing educational access, equity, and opportunity to minoritized populations, this lecture-style presentation will feature a discussion on creating safe educational spaces and ways to foster student-teacher relationships, community, and transparency in the classroom while honoring cultural diversity and difference.
One such example will be in examining the liberation pedagogy that is ever-present in the Children’s Defense Fund® Freedom School Model. In addition, a discussion around critical reflexivity and practice of one’s teaching and learning experiences will provide a framework for examining pedagogical practices for working with historically minoritized populations.
Dr. Scott is an esteemed lecturer who will be joining us from Baylor University. Some of her credentials include:
- Baylor Fellow, 2022-2023
- Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction
- Graduate Program Director | Curriculum and Instruction
- Founder & Director | Baylor CDF Freedom Schools® Program
