A new podcast by the College of Education and Integrative Studies (CEIS) has launched focusing on trends and innovation in the fields of education.
Each week a CEIS staff member will stop by and chat with host Dean Jeff Passe about their studies and research in their respective fields.
“These podcasts will enable the college to share our professors’ work on a widespread basis,” Dean Passe said.
“We are all excited about educating others regarding our scholarly pursuits, our advocacy efforts and the college’s new and evolving programs of study. As a long-time podcast listener, I know how satisfying it is to be exposed to new ideas as I drive to work or do chores around the house.”
The first guest will be Professor Betty Alford, co-director of the CEIS doctoral program. She will be discussing how the field of education leadership has progressed, focusing less on the narrow concept of “school administrator,” and how her doctoral program functions, adapting its courses to better meet the needs of the busy professionals and the specific, practical nature of the student’s research programs.
“We have a collection of faculty in the college of education and integrative studies, with really interesting scholarly programs and very very diverse backgrounds,” Dean Passe said. “And the public needs to know who they are and what they do, both in understanding what it is the professors do –because people think of them only as teachers and they don’t realize that scholars are creating knowledge also.”
Other upcoming guests include Jose Aguilar-Hernandez, an assistant professor at the Department of Ethnic and Women’s Studies who will be discussing his research in Chicano/Chicana studies; and Haiming Liu, a professor of Asian American Studies who will discuss his research, specifically, his book about the history of Chinese restaurants and Chinese food in the United States.
