COE hosts faculty EDtalks

On January 24, 2018, eleven College of Education faculty members were featured in the college’s EDtalks: Scholarship Worth Sharing event. Coordinated by Mary Bair (Educational Foundations) and Beomkyu Choi (Literacy and Technology), the event was structured to mimic the structure of TED talks, with each 5-minute presentation providing a brief overview of faculty projects or research.

The presentations included:

  • Gabriela Gui - Sustainable Models for School Leadership
  • Erica Hamilton - Moms & Daughters Read Together: The Story of a Local Book Club

  • Elizabeth Stolle - Swedish Sabbatical: Living and Learning
  • Roger Wilson - Grade Inequality
  • Nancy DeFrance - Faculty Learning Labs
  • Darrien Ripple - Maryland Equity & Inclusion Leadership Program
  • Nagnon Diarrassouba - Franco Arab Schools and Challenges of Bilingualism: What Curricula and What Pedagogies?

The event was attended by College of Education faculty and staff, with additional guests from Kirkhof College of Nursing. Dean Barry Kanpol stated that he “would like to see it become an annual event, providing faculty with a space to showcase their work and research.”
