The Freedom to Teach: Confronting Complex Themes in Contested Spaces
September 28 @ 6:00 pm - October 1 @ 12:00 pm
Flagler College is hosting “The Freedom to Teach: Confronting Complex Themes in Contested Spaces,” a non-partisan conference that seeks to bring history and civics educators from a variety of different backgrounds. Professionals in K-12 public education, libraries, museums, administration, and college students are invited to share their perspectives on and experiences with teaching difficult topics. This conference will help build bridges between these different constituencies, share best practices, outline common tasks, and develop solutions to teaching complicated themes that are based on the shared educational mission.
For more details on featured speakers and conference sessions, please visit the Freedom to Teach Conference webpage. Registration is required and closes on September 12, 2023.
Funding for this program was provided through a sponsorship from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
