Alliant International University has partnered with Penguin Random House Education to bring authors and educational leaders together for webinars that provide expertise, guidance, and resources to educators seeking to amplify their impacts. The October 23rd webinar will feature Javier Zamora, author of Solito, and Dr. Simran Jeet Singh, author of The Light We Give (Penguin Adult) and Fauja Singh Keeps Going (Penguin Young Readers), in conversation with Dr. Tatiana Rivadeneyra, Program Director of Teacher Education at Alliant International University. The authors will discuss their learning journeys and how today’s diverse classrooms provide learning opportunities for all students and educators.
The discussion will be centered on how educators can create space that supports diversity, encourages students to harness their strengths, and leads to active engagement in learning. Attendees will learn what instruction and learning opportunities allow these new perspectives to occur through the lens of students.
