Teacher Development and Global Issues Joint PCE
Are you a social justice warrior? Exploring the ifs, whys, and hows of social justice in our practice

Are you a social justice warrior?
Exploring the ifs, whys, and hows of social justice in our practice
This term can be loaded with both positive and negative connotations depending on your perspective and teaching context. Is it our part of our professional mandate to be social justice warriors?

A Joint TDSIG/GISIG Pre-conference Event
This year’s PCE sets out to explore the connotations of the term and ways it might influence our work in the classroom with students of all ages and levels. Our world today includes a complex set of issues that affect us all, namely climate change, inequality, immigration, and discrimination. Key questions will include: Is it our job as language educators to bring issues of social justice into the classroom? How do we create lessons that inspire our students to improve the social conditions around them? What activities can we do in our lessons that enable students to engage fully with the topic? Most importantly, how do we develop our own approaches to involving these types of topics in our varying teaching contexts?

If you value the potential for ELT to meaningfully involve students in global issues around us all yet are unsure of our roles as teachers in this scope, come to our PCE in Liverpool 2019 and engage with these challenges through a balanced mix of plenaries, short talks, and open space sessions, which will shape the discussions through emergent and relevant paths to us. Plus, we’ll celebrate the opportunities to connect our two SIG communities and take advantage of the networking that this event represents.
