Making Meaningful Connections
This academic year, NED has adopted the theme Creating Equity through Connection.
“The theme of connection allows us to intentionally explore ways to create belonging for students, colleagues, and ourselves. As we work to create change for equity in our classrooms, we will inevitably experience the ‘implementation dip’ – the feelings of self-consciousness and chaos that occur when we implement new practices,” (Fullan 2007).
Join us for a brief video viewing from Johann Hari, author of Lost Connections: Why You are Depressed and How to Find Hope. We will then engage in a discussion about making meaningful connections with colleagues and students.
