In this course, participants will investigate how privilege and access intersects within the educational system through unsuspecting or intentional/unintentional behaviors. We will discuss how people use their privilege as a form of entitlement to gain access, popularly known as being a “Karen” or “Ken.” Participants will dissect and reflect on how this denies others access and perpetuates stereotypes, bias, and racism using historical structures, systems, and institutions to oppress. Together, we’ll develop skill in navigating spaces in more culturally responsive ways in order to begin dismantling structures that gate-keep marginalized or under-represented populations.

Family support is a large part of a special educator’s role, but the shift to online learning has made this incredibly difficult. This webinar will cover ways of supporting families during COVID 19 and with the shift to distance learning. We will share resources for conducting virtual home visits and discuss ways school staff can connect with families, assess their needs, connect them with resources, and support them in meeting their child’s’ needs at home.
Haring Center staff and Early childhood special educators (teaching in Birth-Grade 3 settings) will share strategies, practices, and supports that have effectively and efficiently supported families and young children during COVID. Please join us for a collaborative conversation around best practices and lessons learned as we all navigate this new normal!
Teachers have a unique perspective about what they need to improve their practice. The EduDesign Fellowship centers the knowledge, expertise, and curiosity of teachers across districts to design a year-round set of learning experiences with and for one another. Fellows are supported to address self-identified problems of practice and challenge one another as educators, learners, and agents of social justice.
