2021 CALL FOR PANELISTS - GE PLN

  • 1.  2021 CALL FOR PANELISTS - GE PLN

    Posted 24 days ago

    Dear Colleagues,


    The Global Education PLN is seeking panelists for our first panel discussion on the theme: "Assessment of Equity and Inclusion in the Classroom" that will be held virtually over Zoom on Thursday, October 7th at 12:00 EST.


    Abstract

    As we strive for equity and inclusion, at some point it is critical to take a step back and measure quantifiable criteria that demonstrate these constructs - equity and inclusion. To do so it is important to first establish these criteria, then establish benchmarks through assessment of those criteria. 

    This discussion seeks to help schools to: 

    1. establish criteria to measure 1) equity and 2) inclusion.  
    2. establish objective assessments of 1) equity and 2) inclusion
    3. link specific equity and inclusion goals to the organization's strategic plan

    Once these things are complete, an organization is able to benchmark programs, classes, or other aspects of the organization against these goals and establish quality enhancement plans that allow them to enhance their program vision. 

    Call for Panelists: 

    1. Panelist 1 Role: Defining and Quantifying Equity in a Variety of Cultures and Places
    2. Panelist 2 Role: Defining and Quantifying Inclusion in a Variety of Cultures and Places
    3. Panelist 3 Role: Building Quality Assessments - Validity and Reliability
    4. Panelist 4 Role: Linking Goals to an Organization's Strategic Plan

    Please, join the GE PLN community in exploring the theme "Assessment of Equity and Inclusion in the Classroom" this October 7th at 12:00 EST. Share your own expertise and get inspired!

    Submit your abstract and feel free to share this call for panelists with your colleagues and in your social networks.

    ***We apologize if you receive this message more than once.

    Kind regards,

    How are you Ms. Glenda Gallardo – I'd like to sign-up, not as a finalist, but hopefully a credible contributor to what you are trying to achieve with this endeavor- "Assessment of Equity and Inclusion in the Classroom".  Please also let me know if my participation isn't permitted into your virtual discussion.  Foot note:  Remember to send the electronic registration form before October 7th so that everybody interested would have ample time to register before the show date.  Looking forward to meeting you.
