TEACHING IN A TIME OF UNCERTAINTY, JULY 13-16, 2020
Re-imagining Migration is offering a unique online learning experience for K-12 teachers, school administrators, and education professionals working in schools, museums, after-school spaces.

The Re-imagining Migration Fellowship Program
Central to our efforts to spur educational innovation is the Re-imagining Migration fellows project. Now entering its second year, Re-imagining Migration fellows are leaders from across the educational ecosystem, including artists and filmmakers, community organizations, museums, schools, and schools of education.
Applicants to the Re-imagining Migration fellows program propose an action research project based on our educational framework, attend our annual seminar, design their project with the assistance of Re-imagining Migration staff and fellows, and agree to share the results of their world with educators around the world.
2020 fellows will:
*Participate in the online seminar at no cost to themselves or educational organizations.
*Receive customized professional support and coaching from Re-imagining Migration Staff at no cost.
*Design an inquiry project based on the Re-imagining Migration framework and learning arc which they will carry out during the 2020-2021 school year.
*Participate in at least three follow up meetings with Re-Imagining Migration staff and fellows.
*Document their practice and share their learning with our network.
*Present their inquiry/action project in at least one professional development setting (e.g. conferences, workshops, webinars, etc.).
