UCEA is hosting an EdTalk again this year- “The In-Between Spaces: Living, Working, and Learning Across Borders.” In keeping with the Convention theme, this EdTalk will highlight people who represent and work “across borders” (geographic, linguistic, generational, and organizational) and who transform them into unique open border spaces. Each participant has interrupted these borders that separate children, teachers, youth, elders, practitioners, scholars, communities, and nations. By doing so they have not simply broken through borders, but also worked to bring communities from the margins to the center. Bridging these distances can be a daunting task and one that requires a set of skills that were not included in our training as educational leaders or scholars. This session will provide insight into the many borders that exist and how to work across them to best advocate for and inquire with schools, community, and children.
