Dr. Yeng Chang, alumna of the LT Ph.D. program (2019), recently participated in a panel presentation titled, "The Intersection Between Technology and Equity" and hosted by the Teacher Educator Technology Integration (TETI) initiative in CEHD. This panel session focused on the opportunities technology provides for creating more equitable experiences in K-12 and higher ed classrooms. The three panelists brought a wide range of experiences using technology as a force to interrupt inequitable practices.

She started her career in Roseville Area Schools as a Social Studies teacher and now works in the district's Office of Educational Equity (OEE) in the role of Technology Integration Specialist. Yeng's scholarship focuses on leveraging teachers' and students' lived experiences with technology to co-construct learning experiences that strengthens their capacity.
