How do we prepare our educators of a changing world?
Writing about the Re-Imagining Migration framework, Veronica Boix-Mansilla explains, “Our research shows that teachers’ capacity to engage complex and sensitive dynamics in the classroom is associated with their own sense of ease or familiarity with the issues at hand. Informal “life experience” understanding plays an important role in helping educators find their own place amidst human migration narratives and recast their role as supporters of the development of youth. New, more culturally sensitive, human-centered, and intimate approaches to professional development are in order. Practices that offer teachers ample room to reflect about their place in a world, values, and biases with others and develop their voice and capacity for influence.”
Below are links to resources designed to promote reflection and professional learning aligned with the key themes that are part of the Re-Imagining Migration framework.
