Join the College of Education and Human Development School of Learning and Teaching for a research brown bag talk on “Teacher Leadership Development: The Value of Boundary Crossing Spaces,” with assistant professors of curriculum, assessment and instruction Tammy Mills and Rebecca Buchanan:
“As both practitioners and scholars of teacher education, we are interested in building capacity for teacher leadership that is rooted in relationships, spans a career, and engages teachers in the processes and actions of leadership. Over the past two years, we have developed a volunteer network of teachers at different points in their careers from multiple schools and districts. We meet monthly, online and/or in person, to discuss educational dilemmas within and beyond classroom walls and support each other in taking action around those dilemmas. With the support of the community, teachers have leveraged their knowledge and relationships to affect change by developing projects, participating in leadership conversations, and taking action at their respective schools. We have found that teachers’ interactions across different contexts have helped strengthen relationships, develop voice, and further grow influence. Moving forward with this volunteer community and burgeoning network, we want to explore how to sustain the developing relationships, grow and strengthen connections, and support teacher leadership efforts over time and space in rural areas.”
Sponsored by the College of Education and Human Development, School of Learning and Teaching.
