April Conference

April 24, 2020

This year's conference recognizes the fiftieth anniversary of Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed by taking up Freire’s theme of “problem-posing education.” We will look to IWT's writing-based teaching practices to explore the art of posing generative questions that allow students to take ownership of their own learning.
