UOTeachOUT:  An annual leadership summit and educational series on Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Issues in Education 

UOTeachOUT is comprised of a series of community and university educational events focused on gender identity and sexual orientation issues in education.  Rather than a single event, UOTeachOUT is an annual series of community outreach educational events and activities hosted by faculty and students from the UO Department of Education Studies.  UOTeachOUT is a theory to action critical pedagogy field project in Education Studies designed to practice an anti-oppressive culturally sustaining pedagogy for future public school teachers.

 

These educational events and activities take place each May for UOTeachOUT and include:
1.) An outreach form with community members, school district personnel and teacher educators to expand and share knowledge between theory to practice. (April 27)
2.) A community wide celebration and BBQ fundraiser to support LGBTQ youth leadership opportunities.  (May 7)
3.) Two professional development events for educators,  youth advocacy workers and families (May 10 and May 12)
4.)  A GSA Youth Summit (May 12)
5.) A research forum on sexual orientation and gender identity issues in teacher education. (June 6)
