May 17, 2022 @ 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
The student panel is scheduled for 12:35 – 1:45 p.m.
As we prepare for Teach Together Minnesota!, an important part of this day will be hearing directly from students about what is important to them, especially with respect to remote/online teaching and culturally responsive content and pedagogy.
We are asking for your help. Can you identify students for this panel?
- Student Representation: We’re looking for up to six students who, together, represent high schools (dual enrollment particularly), colleges, universities, discipline/field of study cross sections, diverse life backgrounds and experiences.
- Expectations for Participation: As a member of this panel, students will be asked to create a single PowerPoint slide and briefly share their stories during a 2-3 minute talk on the day of the conference. We will ask them to share what has led to their successes and where they have encountered barriers to success. Each student will also be asked to respond to 1-3 pre-determined questions about remote/online learning and their experiences of cultural fluency and inclusion.
- Compensation: Students will receive a $100 gift card for their participation.
- Follow-Up: After the conference, we will re-connect with student panelists to hear their feedback and learn more about their ongoing quests in education.
We will not be able to include all students nominated, but we will respond appreciatively and graciously regarding all who are.
Teach Together Minnesota! is a free, virtual conference bringing together educators from across Minnesota to have discussions with colleagues in their field of study grounded in cultural fluency and culturally relevant pedagogies. Registration now available.
