This presentation from Dr. Sarah Dryden-Peterson (Associate Professor, HGSE) as part of the Next Level Lab Distinguished Speaker Series presents three pedagogies of belonging – predictability, adaptability, and future-building – that can support displaced students as they seek to learn in the present and build their futures. These lessons from refugee education are relevant for the continued educational, economic, and political uncertainty so many students face and for anticipated future uncertainties related to pandemics, conflict, and climate change.
