Big Ideas in Education- A Conversation with Dr. Kerry-Ann Escayg

    Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 4:00 PM until 5:30 PMEastern Standard Time

    The Big Ideas in Education Speaker Series is being implemented by AU School of Education in response to the ever-changing education landscape due to COVID-19 and the School’s commitment to antiracism and equity in education. Our students, faculty, and staff at SOE are engaged in conversations and projects focused on creating new, big, and innovative ways to resolve long-standing inequities in education. 

    We are proud to announce our third speaker for the series: Dr. Kerry-Ann Escayg, an Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. As an anti-racist and anti-colonial scholar committed to fostering Pan-African unity and racial equity in the early years, Professor Escayg—via both pedagogy and research—challenges racial and attendant economic injustices affecting Black children and families in the US, Canada, and the Caribbean. Professor Escayg has also developed and advocates for “anti-racism in early childhood education”. Recently, she further established this pedagogical model by creating an anti-racist professional development program consisting of several interrelated study modules for early childhood educators.
