Join us on Friday Sept 30, 9-11:30. The retreat will explore and address linguistic bias to better support all learners. This includes learners for whom a language other than English is their first language, and learners for whom academic standard varieties of English are not their dominant language. Detailed speaker and event agenda to information to follow. This will be a two-track hybrid event. Join us in Gordon Commons OR on Zoom.
