Culturally Responsive Learning
Culturally responsive teaching/learning or relevant teaching focuses on student learning, cultural competence, and socio-political awareness. Culturally responsiveness is grounded in teachers’ ability to demonstrate cultural competence by being rooted in their own culture and showing fluency in other cultures. This educational framework approaches teaching and learning with full recognition of systemic oppression and the empowering effect it can have on students. We help educators connect with students from diverse backgrounds by building their community’s cultural wealth.
Intelligence in Education
Education is at a pivotal juncture in its development. Market changes, concerns about COVID-19, and demands for educational equity are requiring educational institutions to reconsider their strategies to meet student and workforce demands. Whether you are in higher education or in schools, Students, staff, and faculty dealing with these challenges benefit from establishing emotional intelligence competencies. Through assessment, education, training, and coaching we help individuals and schools navigate complex change.
Transforming education requires leaders and teachers who possess the knowledge, skills, and character to make change. Cultural Intelligence and intercultural competence are among the skills necessary for transformation within and externally. We help educational institutions and individuals to identify, create support, and incentivize equity initiatives and provide ongoing training and coaching to support organizational sustainability. The key to our inquiry, analysis and action is intersectionality. Education must function as an instrument for liberation and the practice of freedom.
