DEIJ is innovation

About this event

Session Description:

This workshop is open to all leaders and educators. The session will provide opportunities for courageous personal reflection and conversations with others. During the session, we will 'lean in' with self and others as we explore a range of provocations that are designed for us to challenge our assumptions, ask challenging questions, reflect upon our lived experiences, and nurture our critical consciousness, which are some of the "points of departure" as we courageously plan systemic and sustainable action. Some of the provocations include the brilliance and wisdom of bell hooks, Isabel Wilkerson, Paulo Freire, Margaret Wheatly, Zaretta Hammond, Daniel Wickner, Darnell Fine, and Audre Lorde.

We will dialogue around abstract concepts such as identities, power, privilege, oppression, historical and systemic racism, fear, vulnerability, and leadership. We will then find specificity around these abstract concepts that will have relevance and impact to adult and student learning and well being.

This session is designed as participatory, where the facilitator and the participants are co-learners, co-investigators, and co-creators of learning grounded on trust, reciprocity and partnership. Congruent to our belief that our action on DEIJ is a political act and a moral imperative, this workshop will hopefully enable us to understand "education as a practice of freedom".

Takeaways for Participants:

DEIJ is innovation. It compels us to reimagine, rethink, reflect, dismantle, interrupt, tinker, restructure power, grapple with complexities; iterate & prototype. Innovation must be restorative. (Is it harming or healing?) ...and ensure restitution, sustainability and lifelong strategic impact; to transform conditions for self, others, and the world.

Organizer of #ISLLoft: Joel Jr Llaban presents "Sustaining Courage for Change"

The International School of Luxembourg is a member of a unique class of educational institutions that proudly include the word "international" in their name. We are a Preschool to Grade 12 school with an outstanding pedagogical approach to learning in the early years (Lower School), and a rigorous, globally conscious, university-preparatory curriculum for growing teens (Middle and High School).

As an IBO World School, we ensure our graduates are offered a preparation for life-long learning based on the highest global standards and the best-practices of international schools world-wide.

Our supportive, multi-national community collaborates to create an environment for learning that fosters not only the confidence to succeed, but also an appreciation for being situated in Luxembourg at the very heart of European culture.
