2023-24 BIPOC Educators EduDesign Fellowship

Centering Black, Indigenous and/or People of Color (BIPOC) Teachers in Education

Summer Institute: Aug 9 & 10 (9AM-1PM) IN PERSON
Saturday Sessions: Oct 7 | Dec 2 | Feb 3 (9AM-12PM) ONLINE
Final Saturday Session: May 4  (9AM-12PM) IN PERSON
Teachers have a unique perspective about what they need to improve their practice. EduDesign is an experimental space that supports teachers to engage in a collective process of inquiry-- to grapple with self-identified questions and problems of practice. The fellowship is a year-round experience that kicks off with a summer institute and includes multiple convenings throughout the year.
In this cohort specifically designed to support teachers who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color (BIPOC), we will affirm and celebrate the expertise, wisdom, and agency that teachers of Color hold and bring into the classroom. In addition to learning tools to name and challenge systems of oppression that have historically affected our racialized communities, we will also focus on exploring the different ways we can thoughtfully and consistently co-create liberatory educational experiences with our BIPOC students. By centering ourselves and BIPOC students, our cultural knowledges, histories, communities, and families, we will think through asset-based pedagogies to affirm our presence in schools and strengthen our work towards educational justice.  Each cohort provides space for fellows to build community, make sense of big ideas together, grow their justice work-- in their practice and in schools, and support one another as professionals.
