TAMPA, Fla. (Oct. 29, 2020) — Registration is now open for the David C. Anchin Center for the Advancement of Teaching’s first virtual conference, “Reimagining Education: Opportunities for Achievement, Equity and Justice in a Post-Pandemic World.”

Created in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the conference will discuss the urgency the education sector faces in developing enduring, transformative changes for how education is provided to diverse populations in Florida schools. The online conference will take place on Dec. 3-5, 2020.

The conference will feature nationally recognized experts who will provide keynote addresses throughout the event, including:

  • Pedro Noguera, PhD, Dean and Professor Rossier School of Education University of Southern California
  • Joan Hughes, PhD, Associate Professor of Curriculum & Instruction The University of Texas at Austin
  • Eric Hall, EdD, Senior Chancellor for K-12 Education Florida Department of Education

“The coronavirus pandemic underscores longstanding inequalities that exist in the educational system and serve as a barrier to achievement by all of Florida’s children,” said Howard Johnston, PhD, Interim Associate Director of the David C. Anchin Center. “The crisis precipitated by extended school closings and tentative reopenings also provides an opportunity to change policy and practice to address these persistent issues and inequities.”

Attendees who register by Nov. 13, 2020 will receive early-bird pricing of $75 — a $20 savings. Students may register at a discounted rate of $50 each. All registered attendees will have access to session recordings and materials for 90 days after the event.
