CSET Professional Learning


Equity in Education: Bridging Research to Practice

Content Deepening Courses


Registration is CLOSED.

Along with the Cross Area Committee in Race, Inequality, and Language in Education (RILE); the Stanford Teacher Education Program (STEP); and the TELOS Initiative; CSET invites K-12 practitioners to engage with us in considering how to better serve students who are traditionally underserved in our classrooms.

This full day of learning includes a call to action by students; three sessions of 90-minute, practitioner-based workshops; and a panel of Stanford researchers discussing the question of how to bridge research to practice in service to equity in our schools.

Lunch is included. One continuing education credit is available with your full day's attendance along with a brief and flexible opportunity beyond the conference designed for you to share resources and applications of learning with other conference participants.
