This year's program featured two distinguished co-lecturers that together focused on the ideological development of teacher critical consciousness within the context of teacher education. Grounded in a Freirean perspective, key questions tied to dual language teacher education and international teacher preparation were examined, with an eye toward supporting ideological clarity at the curricular and extra-curricular levels within schools.
