"Following the Learner" with in-person classes, continuous advisory meetings, regular feedback, and learning together.
DEI, Anti-Bias, Anti-Racist Educational Practices - Our curriculum integrates ABAR and DEI throughout the course with special time dedicated to how we can make our classroom inclusive and foster the development of teaching with a DEI-ABAR lens.
