About Teach Together Minnesota!

The purpose of the Teach Together Minnesota! conference is to connect educators across Minnesota, learn from our intentional efforts to change our practices to be more culturally responsive in order to achieve more equitable practices and outcomes for our students.

In addition to the Making Connections Panel, this third year of the conference will also feature:

  • What the Data Taught Us – Over the past few years, 17 different discipline groups have come together in Faculty Learning Communities to create Action Plans for implementing an equitable teaching practice into their classes. The FLC co-facilitators, Instructional Designer Melissa Williams and Equity Coach Ed Minnema, will share data from participant surveys, suggesting next steps for Minnesota State higher education professionals. 
  • Student Panel – An important part of the conference each year where student panelists share personal journeys of their educational experience, what has led to their successes, where they have encountered barriers to success, and their experiences with online learning and cultural fluency.
  • Faculty Learning Community Project Perusals – Past Faculty Learning Community participants will share the spectrum of outcomes from their Action Plans throughout the day in 20-minute increments.
  • Discipline Group Discussions – Gather with educators in your field of study from around the state. Discipline groups are invited to engage in conversation, share files, keep a collective notebook, and use a Teams chat feature for immediate and ongoing communication.
