T.E.A.M. Work: Transforming Remedial Education Through Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies

Speakers: Dr. Asif Wilson, Chaddrick Wilson, and Dr. Heather L. Fox

Participants in this workshop will learn about the culturally sustaining (Paris, 2012, 2016; Parish and Alim, 2014) remedial education interventions taking place at Harold Washington College. The Office of Community College Research and Leadership (OCCRL) out of the University of Illinois will provide an overview of their work, the Pathways to Results (PTR) grant that supported this initiative, and their consultative role in supporting equity-based praxis in Illinois community colleges. Harold Washington will review their PTR project--a professional development intervention for staff, faculty, and administration framed through Django Paris’s (2012, 2016) model for culturally sustaining pedagogies--and lead participants through a conceptualization of how this work might fit within their institutional settings.

This workshop will take place at the 2018 Minority Serving Institution Convening. Learn more ...
