Helping Ukrainian Schoolteachers in a Time of War

On August 7 and 8, 2023, the College of Education teaching faculty and staff hosted a peer-to-peer training event for a delegation of educators from Uzhhorod, Ukraine. The intent of this training was to provide Ukrainian educators with skills and mentorship as they attempt to teach vulnerable students during a time of conflict and upheaval. Workshop topics focused on practices, current standards, and effective methods for online teaching. The event has resulted in ongoing partnerships. Canvas LMS system administrators are creating tailored modules that will enable these trainers and their peers to implement wide-scale online learning in the Uzhhorod Public School system and beyond. Additionally, the College of Education is launching an international Educator to Educator (E2E) program, pairing Ukrainian educators with Corvallis educational faculty as part of a peer mentorship initiative. This initiative was sponsored by  Oregon State University’s Office of Faculty Affairs and the Corvallis Sister Cities Association-Uzhhorod Council.

Addressing Racism Internationally in the Practice of Counseling

Through a grant awarded by Oregon State's Office of Global Engagement, Dr. Kok-Mun Ng, along with some colleagues and students, created the international Network for Antiracist Teaching in Counseling (NARTIC). The network will build an international community of antiracist counseling professionals to advance racial justice and equity, and empower counseling professionals across the world to develop antiracist pedagogies. The network has members from various national backgrounds who have formed workgroups to conduct research projects and develop training modules. Members recently presented at a national counseling conference in Denver, Colorado, and are providing support spaces in response to the current Israeli/Hamas war which has contributed to a dramatic rise of antisemitism and Islamophobia.
