Student voice has always been important to me. During my learning in TELP last year, I started thinking more deeply about the voices that are quiet, hesitant, or silent. What efforts are we as educators making to move learners from showing up to class, to feeling safe, to feeling brave? How do we create spaces for more diverse voices to be heard in decision making? Digging into curiosity to cultivate equitable learning environments where all feel a sense of belonging needs to be our priority.
