TALK: Weaving Dreams as Filipino Educational Praxis

April 12, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Tokioka Room, Moore Hall 319 Add to Calendar

Members of the Tinalak Filipino Education Advisory Council at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s College of Education will share their scholarship recently published in the nation’s first themed-issue of Filipino education in “Educational Perspectives”, an interdisciplinary research journal focused on education in Hawaiʻi.

The journal, entitled “Woven Dreams: Threading Filipino Educational Praxis” weaves together educational theories and practices to connect and understand the multilayered educational experiences of Filipinos in Hawaiʻi and beyond.

The presentation will provide participants with a foundation to critically understand K-20 Filipino student achievement patterns and experiences, an expanded notion of Filipino identities through storytelling, and new forms of culturally and linguistic pedagogies that will ultimately serve the fabric of the Filipino community.

Through the process of threading and weaving the stories, the speakers hope to invite participants in a dialogue that revalues the wealth and wisdom that Filipinos bring to K-12 and higher education.
