Join us in the Twin Cities for the Progressive Education Network National Conference 2019
When: Thursday, October 3 to Saturday, October 5
Where: In and around the University of MN Campus in the Twin Cities of Minnesota
Surrounded by abundant lakes, ponds and wetlands and by the shores of the Mississippi River, we will re-imagine progressive education for the 21st Century. This year's conference will be jam-packed with energetic workshops led by passionate educators who are ready to engage with colleagues from all around the country to introduce, renew, affirm and create progressive practices – creating a mighty current that will transform education.
Rising To the Surface: These workshop sessions will amplify past and present voices & experiences in progressive education that take us beyond the traditional canon of progressive education.
Navigating the Current: These workshop sessions will provide participants with stories, experiences, and practical wisdom for negotiating a variety of challenges and opportunities in progressive education. Workshop sessions will explore areas such as Wellness; Social & Emotional Learning; Restorative Justice, Equity & Activism; Identity & Allyship.
Channeling the Future: These workshop sessions provide participants with practical, “oars-in” strategies to “do” progressive practice in any school, any classroom, anywhere; visioning strategies for implementing changes; strategies for sustaining the work, even in choppy waters.
