Summer 2017 EDUC 401 Inner Pipeline Seminar

  • EDUC 401A
  • Date: Tuesdays 
  • Time:  4:30-5:50pm in JHN 022
  • Schedule Number: 11333

Instructor: Kim Draggoo (kdraggoo@hotmail.com)

Participants in this seminar will explore the world of public education through weekly seminars and a tutoring practicum experience in local K-12 schools or community organizations. Both components will allow students to engage in critical reflection on some of the current issues in education at three different levels: local, national, and international.

The seminars are designed to provide a space where we can collectively reflect on tutoring experiences, emerging knowledge of teaching practices, and the relationships we build with the world.  As a whole, this experience is intended to challenge us to raise questions about the purpose and nature of education in an increasingly diverse, global society. We will also always consider possibilities for a stronger, healthier and more equitable future by being realistic optimists!
