Every spring since 2018, the Dignified Learning Project has hosted the “Praxis in Education Student Conference.” This conference was created with the vision to provide an event for students passionate about transforming education through educational praxis. Through this event, we aim to provide a space for students and community members to convene, connect, and learn from one another, in order to share and expand on our knowledge with the intent to use education as a force for social justice.
We invite any proposal that highlights the role of education in our society as well as the importance of educational transformation. This can be anything from policy change, theoretical contributions, activities, pedagogy, and many other educational approaches. This conference is for students and attendance is open and free for everyone. Students at any level can submit proposals. Students include, but are not limited to: undergraduates, recent graduates, graduates, teacher education/credential students, continuing education, and high school students.
We welcome proposals across all fields, as education impacts everybody!
