One Day Content Conference for Educators

February 13, 2019

Dr. Joshi recently co-hosted and presented a one-day content conference in partnership with NYSAIS, titled Understand the Past to Understand Today: Content Knowledge & Context on Pressing Social Issues. The idea from the conference grew from conversations with educators and administrators who expressed a hunger for foundational content knowledge in order to better understand current national conversations around race, religion, and immigration. At the conference, participants heard lectures and engaged in discussions on immigration policy, Black Lives Matter, and Islam in America with Dr. Joshi, Dr. Sylvia Chan-Malik of Rutgers University, and Dr. Jason Williams of Montclair State University.
