Why the Education Summit?
Our purpose in offering the summit is to ask pre-service and in-service teachers to consider their own autonomy within the profession and their classroom teaching practices. It is critical that pre-service teachers recognize that they can shape their own teaching practices within the over tested and regulated teaching profession. The Education Summit aims to sow the seeds for reflective thinking leading to action within their own teaching.
The Summit is typically a 2-day event, the first day kicks off with the keynote. On day two, there are opportunities to hear from the keynote speaker in smaller sessions or attend sessions led by faculty, students and other education professionals.
