What do I need to know about my EDST classes?

The Department of Education Studies is not cancelling any Fall 2020 courses.  All EDST instructors are preparing to deliver instruction via remote learning or in person instruction.  You will receive details from your instructors about how to access course content (Canvas, Zoom, etc.). Faculty and instructors will continue to provide engaging materials and activities through remote learning.

We engage in teaching, research and service that centers Tribal Sovereignty, Black Lives Matter in schools, Latinx and Asian Desi Pacific Islander identity and exclusion, economic justice, LGBTQ educational rights, immigrant educational rights, language preservation, and access and opportunity for Oregon K-12 students to all be fully included in every classroom.
