Congratulations to all the students graduating this weekend! Check out our last pair of facilitators for the semester, Colin Kadis ’22 and Khary Pryce ’22, two of our senior EDUC 2610 co-facilitators. We’ll miss all of our seniors, and we can’t wait to see what they do next! Here's what these two have to say about IDP and one another.
I truly believe that IDP teaches fundamental skills essential for being a good human, team player, and member of society. I love relating IDP to real world, everyday situations and hope to help others to accomplish the same. Personally, IDP has helped me acknowledge how I relate my dominant and target identities to the relationships and interactions I have every day and challenged me to approach daily interactions with empathy and curiosity.
For me, IDP is a space to reflect on the world around me. There is so much going on at all times, it’s refreshing to find people who want to turn inwards and focus on how these cycles affect us. I keep coming back becuase I just love getting to share my perspectice and get a peek into how my peers are making sense of things.
What's your favorite thing about your co-facilitator?
Khary has an incredible ability to inject energy into any situation, whether it is through an energizer or icebreaker or just in a discussion or debrief. She has such a strong understanding of all the concepts we teach in IDP that it is easy for me to feel supported that our students will leave session with the right questions in their minds, and she does a great job of encouraging me to challenge myself to make mistakes and spend time in my learning zone. Khary was my facilitator when I took IDP and I feel very lucky to be able to spend another semester in the classroom with her!
Colin gave me a renewed love and appreciation for the process. I’ve been with IDP for a while, but he challenged me to see things with a fresh eye! It was so great getting to teach with someone so dedicated to what we do and I’m so thankful for the time we spent this semester!
