Conference 2016: Challenge. Learn. Grow. Take Action.

The 17th annual Curriculum and Pedagogy Conference will take place from 20—21 October 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Conference Details

The Curriculum and Pedagogy Conference is an annual gathering of diverse individuals seeking academic enrichment and professional engagement who are committed to educational reform and social change. The conference opens up spaces to advance the ideals of progressive curriculum and democratic leadership in education through dialogue and action. The conference organizers seek to bring together individuals from diverse settings, including academics, graduate students, school district administrators, PreK-12 teachers, and all other cultural workers from community groups and organizations who hope to integrate, interrogate, and develop theories and practices for educational change and social justice.

The conference fosters spaces for democratic community building, collective scholarship, and social action in an informal, collegial setting. In the spirit of visionaries such as John Dewey, Maxine Greene, George Counts, Alice Miel, and Horace Mann Bond, and others, we gather together to deepen our critical insights into the historical, political, personal, aesthetic, spiritual contexts of our work within a perspective that regards curriculum studies as integral to the fabric of everyday public life and wholly connected to the daily pedagogical practice of schools.
