Time: 10: 00 am - 1:00 pm

Description: The work around Culturally Responsive Sustaining Education (CRSE) has become imperative. At its core CRSE embraces students’ identities as a source of knowledge and gives representation to more diverse voices and to marginalized and disadvantaged communities. Compared to the extensive work done in K-12 and adult higher education, the breadth of research for community-based organizations and non-formal educational settings is limited (Jones, J. 2021). This institute will serve as a vehicle for critical reflection, enhancing adult educators’ knowledge, tools and pedagogical strategies to create culturally responsive environments in the adult education classrooms.

Topics addressed by this institute will include:

  • Theoretical foundation
  • Bias and microaggressions
  • Building classroom culture
  • Pedagogical Practices
  • Planning anti bias and antiracist instruction
  • Participatory practices
  • Culturally relevant assessments
