The event is free and open to the public, but due to limited seating an RSVP is required.  A link to the RSVP form can be found by visiting the College of Education website at www.sarasota.usf.edu/COE.  Questions about the event can be emailed to Dr. Marie Byrd-Blake, an Assistant Professor in the College of Education, at mbyrdblake@sar.usf.edu.  This event is also serving as the West Central Symposium for FATE (Florida Association of Teacher Educators.)
