Event description

Description

Join Dr. Xia Chao for the first of four interactive workshops in a series dedicated to helping educators understand the cultures, needs, and assets of the Pittsburgh area's refugee communities.

Through a grant from the National Geographic Society, Dr. Chao has conducted research over the past several years that explores the experiences and narratives of local refugee communities including the Nepali, Karen, and Somali Bantu.

This workshop series seeks to incorporate the findings of Dr. Chao's research in order to offer local educators insight into working with students from these communities and resources for supporting immigrant and refugee famillies in their interactions with the American educational system.

Workshop topics will be as follows:

  1. Understanding the Local Immigrant and Refugee Landscape (May 13th, 2019)
  2. Culturally Relevant Pedagogy with Refugee Populations (June -- Date TBA)
  3. Cultural Navigation and Cultural Humility (Fall -- Date TBA)
  4. Putting Information into Action (Fall -- Date TBA)

Light refreshments and Act 48 credits will be provided at this event. For more information on the workshop series and content, please contact Dr. Xia Chao (chaox@duq.edu). For information about the May 13th event and logistics, please contact Jenna Geiman (jenna@changeagency.world).
