The Village

Exploring Issues in Education Together

The Village is a way for us to continue our conversations about theory and practice, emergent and important issues in education, and to build our community. It is co-hosted by our own Dr. Bev Bell and MAT alum Lily Eisermann.

What is the Village?

Co-Host Bev Bell discusses The Village, a webinar series of online conversations where participants explore issues in education together. Join us on Sunday nights as a way to get energized for your week!
