About this Event


		PJI Teachers Academy 2021 Session 2 image

As we navigate through our current global crisis, the PJI Academy invites all educators who are leading the way for our students and teachers to become resilient, lifelong learners to participate in the PJI Teachers Academy where we focus on creating inclusive, respectful, compassionate, and loving learning spaces that humanize all learners. Our academy model is based upon ten years of collaboration with leading scholars in the field of peace studies including Dr. Peggy McIntosh, Dr. Beverly Tatum, Dr. George Lopez, Dr. Michael Nagler, Elaine Sullivan, Emily Style, Dr. Alma Abdul-Hadi Jadallah, and Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg. The academy pairs their insights and practices with local PJI experts to create professional development opportunities for educators using a systematic inquiry-based process to build resilient communities in our schools, institutions, and families.

Our fundamental components of respect and community building prepare educators for difficult conversations related to race, privilege, and politics through methods that challenge them to unpack their own privileges and encourage them to promote justice by taking action. The academy also shows participants that the core of promoting peace and justice is starting with one’s self, a most important contribution to creating safe spaces where students are validated, affirmed, and dignified as human beings.

PJI Teachers Academy Session 1 will be hosted online via ZOOM beginning with a Prelude on Sunday evening from 7:00pm-8:30pm and then daily sessions in two 3-hour blocks between 9:00am-4:00pm. These sessions will be Synchronous (live session via Zoom with your facilitators and fellow participants). You will have access to materials on our online learning management platform Canvas.

Part of our PJI model is connecting through a shared purpose during learning sessions, coffee breaks, and lunch. We are creating authentic and supportive learning through our experience with virtual mindfulness, music, art, and breakout rooms that have proven to be quite effective in uniting participants around our shared goals.

Program Outcomes:

  • Employ pedagogical tools and theoretical frameworks to create peaceful, safe and inclusive classrooms.
