2013 OSEP Project Directors' Conference Blog

“To me one of the gravest challenges facing education today is our inability to translate ideas… we can’t really seem to get the ideas from the research to the legislative piece and to schools.” Dr. Vanessa Siddle Walker

 

A number of sessions at this year’s OSEP Project Directors’ Conference will address cultural responsiveness, including a keynote presentation by Dr. Vanessa Siddle Walker, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Educational Studies at Emory University.  Many OSEP funded projects strive to ensure the needs of diverse learners and school personnel are met through a variety of projects, including personnel development projects.

On Monday, July 15, 2013 Dr. Siddle Walker will deliver a keynote presentation, “Lost Professional Commitments and Living Conceptual Challenges,” that will focus on how using successful practices employed by Black educators in the past may better engage schools and communities today.  In this candid conversation Dr. Siddle Walker reflected on how the lessons learned from the past can influence practices used in school systems today, not only for diverse learners, but for all students.
