Lebermann Forum: What’s Missing in Civic Education
January 12, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST
How should we prepare students for a lifetime of civic engagement? When does civic learning begin? What have we been missing?
Questions such as these are central to the future of civic education, and they will be addressed at the 2021 Lowell Lebermann Forum on January 12th at Noon (CST). This free, online event is hosted by the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Life at the University of Texas at Austin. Register to attend here.
Confirmed panelists are:
- Dr. Marc Brackett, Director of Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, and author of Permission to Feel.
- Dr. John Holbein, Assistant Professor of Public Policy and Education at the University of Virginia; author of Making Young Voters: Converting Civic Attitudes into Civic Action.
- Amber Coleman-Mortley, Director of Social Engagement, iCivics, and author of Momofallcapes.com
- Dr. Kiyomi Sánchez-Suzuki Colegrove, Assistant Professor of Bilingual/Bicultural Education at Texas State University and part of the Agency and Children Research Collective.
These national experts in education, civic learning, and psychology will share their expertise and discuss essential, but overlooked, opportunities to educate future engaged citizens. Particular emphasis will be given to the important role of Social-Emotional Learning and opportunities in early childhood to develop civic agency as a foundation for civic learning. This is a wonderful event for educators, policy makers, advocates, and students from across fields and disciplines to come together to examine this topic from an interdisciplinary perspective.
