Featuring author D. Scott Tharp
When: Tuesday, June 14th
1pm ET / 10am PT

Leading diversity and social justice education initiatives with intention and integrity require staff to make choices about how we approach this work. These choices include what types of initiatives we host, the focus of our efforts, how we engage learners, and ways to collect evidence of its impact on learning. You cannot follow a canned template, but need to craft your own experience to meet the needs before you.

In this webinar, D. Scott Tharp, the author of the book Doing Social Justice Education: A Practitioner's Guide for Workshops and Structured Conversations will provide an overview of the book, discuss key steps in the design and assessment process along with their relevance, and answer questions from participants.
