Meeting highlights include:

“I learned the value not of content delivery, but of what it means to teach someone to believe they could be better than what they thought they imagined. This belief is the fire that propels ordinary individuals to do great things. Therefore, when I enter my classrooms today, I am looking for that fire. I am looking for the social justice mission of the Greensboro Four and the vision of the Freedom Riders. I want the defiance of Malala Yousafzai and the boldness of Daisy Bates. I want students to see credit hours, classroom spaces and degrees as artificial endpoints that restrict the unbridled pursuit of knowledge. I want intellectual horizons to become clear in such a way the classroom feels limiting. I want my pedagogy to encourage students to demand more of the moment and themselves, aspiring in every waking second to this ideal. I want this ideal to hang like a guiding star above the classroom, reminding all involved of our collective responsibility to each other and the common good.” https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/voices/the-soul-of-my-pedagogy/
