17 Jul EVC Goes to London!

uel_2017

 

We’re happy to announce that this June we launched our first annual EVC Summer Institute at the University of East London in partnership with the University of East London Cass School of Education and Communities.

Postgraduate student teachers, undergraduates, and faculty members worked collaboratively through this intensive, five-day experience to produce their own documentary video, Regeneration: Building Whose Dream?  about gentrification and displacement in the Stratford community of East London. Co-taught by EVC Executive Director Steve Goodman and Dr. ML White from the Cass School of Education and Communities, participants developed strategies for building digital and print literacy and facilitating a project based inquiry with students in response to community social justice issues.  While there, Steve also gave a talk for the UEL’s Practitioner Research Group on EVC’s participatory action research project with the NYC DOE Office of Postsecondary Readiness on student and police relations.
