13th Annual Gathering of the University Teacher Education Consortium (UTEC)

March 9 - March 11

March 9 – 11, 2020
Hotel Angeleno

Hosted by UCLA Teacher Education Program

Guiding Themes/Essential Questions

  1. How do we center and ground our program, in the learning experiences of our intersectional teachers of color?
  2. How does gentrification change the way we understand community teaching in urban areas?
    • What does culturally sustaining practice, for both our pre-service teachers and our teacher education faculty, look like in a rapidly gentrifying urban area?


  • Fee: $100 for food and local bus transportation (more information soon)
  • Please limit your institutional participation to two or three participants. Due to limited funds, and in order to respect the schools we visit, we will cap total attendance from visiting institutions at 40 participants.


Local airports:

Transportation to and from LAX:

  • Public transportation: the quickest route is the Culver City #6 bus from LAX, then transfer to LA metro #602 local bus (two different bus systems) for which you can use a TAP card when you arrive at LAX.
  • LAX-it: This is the new way that people get to taxis, buses, and rideshares

Transportation to and from schools, and to and from the restaurant Tuesday night, will be provided.

Transportation from the hotel within a six-mile radius is free.
