Pearls and Perils Annual Conference
The keynote address will be given by Dr. Lisa L. Moore, clinical assistant professor of social work, Boston University. Her talk "Millennials, Emerging Adulthood, and the 21st Century Classroom" will address the ways our societal descriptions and understandings of generational diversity shape our perceptions as teachers and consider the role of technology in shaping our impressions. Through examples, humor and research, this talk will highlight the intersection of developmental descriptions versus generational descriptions of students and how this further informs the way we enter the classroom based on our own societal positions.
In addition, there are many morning and afternoon workshops to choose from (see the program schedule below).
