Creative Perspective Taking for Education
Psychological safety is developed by students and teachers who take the perspective of others. Whether it is your colleagues or your students, understanding the perspectives of others will help you not only be better at your jobs but also be a better ally for justice in the classroom. This keynote, which is backed by brain science, shows that seeing ourselves, our students and the curriculum from multiple perspectives is critical for inclusion, creativity and innovation. Perspective taking skills are also required for building an inclusive culture of psychological safety.
