Equity Exhibition Den with Meg Riordan & Mario De Anda

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

During DL2016, the Equity Fellows will be deeply immersed in projects of their own design, aimed at creating interventions and breaking through barriers that inhibit the spread of deeper learning practices to underserved communities. Through a series of Equity Exhibitions (E2), the fellows will share their progress to date, and request feedback and input from DL2016 attendees who are as equally passionate about tackling the equity issue. Join them, and join us, in shaping deeper learning for the better.

Federal Work-Study:  Expanding Internship Opportunities and Professional Development for First-Generation and Low-Income Youth In College

Many first-generation and low-income college-going youth—particularly freshmen and sophomores—who participate in the Federal Work-Study program find limited employment opportunities. Those they do find often fail to provide meaningful professional experiences. The goal of this project is to engage college and/or university partners in expanding internship opportunities and professional development for first-generation and low-income youth duringthe student’s freshman and sophomore years in college.


Meg Riordan, Ph.D. Director, EL Education Potential Teacher Project How are we Teaching the Teachers?  Designing professional learning to promote Deeper Learning and Equity for students

Many of today's teachers are not equipped to support the complexity of preparing students to meet 21st Century challenges.  How can we effectively equip these educators with the ability to facilitate 'deeper instruction' that promotes deeper learning for all students?  This research proposes a case study of one "Deeper Learning" organization—EL Education—along withone school district; exploring how each designs professional learning experiences supporting the development of teachers' 'deeper instructional' practices.
