TYCA National Conference - NCTE

W. E. B. Du Bois describes a college as a community “of human beings, learning of the things they do not know from things they do know in their own lives.” In every class and in every action we take as teachers, we engage with the larger purposes and contexts of our institutions and of our students’ lives.

Our 2022 Conference examined those efforts through a lens of recovery and reinvention as we emerged from a time of crisis. TYCA 2023, “Growing Down to the Roots,” offers us another space to name and examine our best efforts to grow and expand our practice, engage with our students’ lives as they are lived (and not as we imagine them or wish them to be), and think towards a collective understanding of what it is we’re trying to do together.
