TEFA Talks – A Teacher Education For All (TEFA) event
Wednesday, September 21, 2016
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Room 310, Neville Scarfe Building
Faculty, sessionals, teacher candidates, and staff are invited to an informal conversation about teaching for inclusion.
We will be discussing how to support a transgender student who is asking for a name change and social transition at school. Special guest(s) will share their experience.
Light refreshments will be available. Please feel welcome to bring your lunch.
The Teacher Education for All! project will build capacity for faculty, staff, and students in Teacher Education at UBC to create and provide an inclusive culture, work place, and learning environment with a particular focus on intersectional approaches to thinking about sexual and gender diversity and pedagogical approaches to recognize, and intervene to transform, the impacts of systemic discrimination.
The Teacher Education for All! project is funded by the UBC-ARC Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Fund. ARC Foundation is a private foundation established in 2009, based in Vancouver, BC. ARC supports projects that exhibit Awareness, Respect and Capacity in improving the status of those who are marginalized in society by sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or financial status. Funding has also been provided by UBC’s Equity and Inclusion Office.
