University of Pittsburgh Center for Urban Education (CUE)

The Center for Urban Education Summer Educator Forum (CUESEF) is a professional learning experience for education professionals (pre- and practicing educators) in Pittsburgh and the surrounding region that focuses on supporting Culturally Responsive curriculum and instructional practices.

During this intensive, two-day forum, participants from PreK-12 from all subject areas will deepen their knowledge and understanding of Culturally Responsive Education (CRE). CUESEF 2018 participants will experience keynotes speakers, a series of four core workshops, and one specialized workshop.

Each participant will experience a core workshop, including:

  • Community and Family Engagement
  • Curriculum and Pedagogy
  • “Classroom Management” and Restorative Justice Practices
  • Improving the School Environment and culture

Attendees will also have the opportunity to attend one special session:

  • Motivation, Identity and Student Learning
  • Immigrant Students and Multilingual Learners
  • Pathway Issues and Higher Education
  • Leadership
  • Policy

Participants will engage with visiting scholars and one another through workshops, lectures, panels, and conversations that will enable them to form deep and lasting links between the concept of culturally responsive education and their daily practices.

The registration fee includes admission, books, materials and parking. Registration also includes breakfast and lunch on both days of the forum. Participants who complete the forum, as well as the required pre-conference readings, are eligible to earn 15 Act 48 credits.

Earlybird registration (through April 30): $30
Standard Registration (May 1 – June 5): $40
Late registration (June 6 – 26): $50
