Our 2016-2017 colloquium series will foster an extended conversation about topics related to education across disciplines and grade levels, especially diversity and inclusion. Invited speakers Ali Michael, Ed Brockenbrough, Marilyn Cochran-Smith, Robert Lee, Janine De Novais, and Jessica Shiller will participate in a special theme titled “Framing the Conversation Towards Engagement and Transformation: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Education and Human Development.” This theme will explore diversity, equity, and inclusion in terms of our college climate, which influences how all members of our community experience the College of Education and Human Development, and our curriculum, which prepares our students for an increasingly diverse educational landscape.
Additional topics for this year’s colloquia include climate change education, interactive digital media in children’s learning, and the Next Generation Science Standards for kindergarten through twelfth-grade teachers. With CEHD and the Center for the Study of Diversity, the School of Education will also host a professional conversation on teacher education with Angela Duckworth.
Unless otherwise noted, all colloquia will begin at 1:00 in Willard Hall 207 and a discussion with the speaker will follow at 2:00.
