Dissertation Defense — Andrew B. Spires @ CEHD, Room 630
Apr 3 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

“Who’s in your classroom? A narrative inquiry of high school students’ experiences with caring instruction and mathematical struggles.”

by: Andrew B. Spires

The purpose of this study is to better understand high school students’ perceptions of caring instruction and mathematical struggles through a narrative inquiry. Lakewood High School (pseudonym) – a large, socioeconomically and racially diverse school in the southeastern United States – was chosen conveniently yet purposefully as the site of study. The participants were three 11th grade students who have a history of academic struggles in mathematics. Data collection included intense and highly relational co-creation of stories by the researcher and participants through conversational interviews, researcher memory recreations, artifact analysis, and other writings introduced throughout the conversations. This narrative inquiry allows for an alignment between the ethic of care (Noddings, 1984) that manifests itself through the lived experiences of the researcher and the participants. This narrative inquiry will begin to fill the gap that exists between student and teacher perceptions of caring mathematics instruction.

Distinguished Speaker Series – Kevin Guskiewicz @ CEHD room 1030
Apr 5 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Distinguished Speaker Series: Kevin Guskiewicz, University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill

Kevin Guskiewicz, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, will speak to CEHD students, faculty and staff April 5 as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series.

Guskiewicz is a neuroscientist and a nationally-recognized expert on sport-related concussions. Previously, he served as senior associate dean for the natural sciences and chair of the Department of Exercise and Sport Science. A 20-year member of Carolina’s faculty, Guskiewicz is the Kenan Distinguished Professor of Exercise and Sport Science, co-director of the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center and director of the Center for the Study of Retired Athletes. His research has focused on sport-related concussion, investigating its effect on balance and neurocognitive function in athletes and the long-term neurological issues related to playing sports. His work has garnered numerous awards, including fellowships in the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Academy of Kinesiology and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. Guskiewicz’s research has also influenced concussion guidelines and recommendations made by these organizations, the NCAA and the NFL. He was named to the NCAA’s Concussion Committee, the NFL Players Association’s Mackey-White Committee and the NFL’s Head, Neck, and Spine Committee. In 2011, he was awarded a prestigious MacArthur Fellowship for his innovative work on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of sport-related concussions. He and his colleagues used that award to help improve safety in high school sports and to help the U.S. military identify and treat serious head injuries. In 2013, Time Magazine named him a game changer, one of 18 “innovators and problem-solvers that are inspiring change in America.”

His presentation, entitled,”The state of sport concussion: Legitimate concern vs. paranoia,” will highlight facts and fallacies of sport-related concussion and concerns about the long-term effects of concussion in sport.

The Distinguished Speaker Series brings cutting-edge researchers at the state and national levels to the college on the first Wednesday of each month. Presentations are held at 12 noon (unless otherwise noted) in the College of Education and Human Development Forum, room 1030.
