What does it take to have families and students feel truly engaged as co-creators rather than members of a focus group or a data point in a survey? Hear from folks who have been in liberatory design teams, comprised of educators, families, and learners, working together to identify and address the needs of learners and families who most need the school to be responsive to their needs.

Session Learning Outcomes:

  1. Be able to distinguish between traditional family and community engagement and liberatory co-creation.
  2. Reflect on issues of importance in your context and identify areas for which liberatory co-creation may be a good fit.
