Transformation by Design: Powerful Possibilities for Supporting Student Success
What can we do to reduce unnecessary learning barriers and design curriculum that support the success of the diverse student body that we encounter on a day-to-day basis? How can we transform our practice to build expert learners and improve student-learning outcomes? Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an asset-based pedagogy that is aligned with culturally relevant pedagogical practices. Asset-based pedagogies embrace a strengths-based approach to teaching and learning. In this highly interactive workshop, participants will explore the UDL framework as a lens for examining their professional practices and transforming them by design.
In this workshop, participants will learn about Mendeley, a free reference-management tool. The presenters will demonstrate some of the key features of Mendeley and coach participants through setting up a free account, downloading the tool to their own machines, and using the key features of Mendeley. Participants will learn about the benefits of Mendeley, including the ability to warehouse reference articles, organize reference citations, automatically download into the program journal articles and reports accessed online, insert parenthetical citations directly into your writing in Microsoft Word documents, toggle parenthetical citations and reference list entries among reference styles (i.e. APA, Chicago, MLA, etc.), and automatically generate a 1:1 reference list in MS Word.
Here is the link to a PDF of the presentation that we referenced presentation, so you can use some screenshots to navigate some of the tasks within your new Mendeley tools: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UhSLbURApZtBv05N08QtSINAPwNi8QA6/view?usp=sharing.
Europe is a multi-ethnic society experiencing a rise of anti-immigration, racist, xenophobic discourses, and right-wing political rhetoric and movements proposing legislation to further solidify structural inequality and institutionalized systems of oppression that fuel educational inequities. Social Justice Education in European Multi-ethnic Schools brings together researchers in the fields of sociology and education to examine debates in multicultural education. Drawing on critical theory, the book takes an in-depth look at how these challenges are being addressed (or not addressed) in educational contexts and in the proposed framework of intercultural education adopted as a conceptual and educational framework by the European Union over the last two decades.
