David Berliner, Regents' professor emeritus at Arizona State University, will discuss teaching, teacher education and educational policy with College of Education students, faculty and staff Sept. 14 as part of the college’s Research Wednesdays Speaker Series.
Berliner has authored over 200 articles, chapters and books on teaching, teacher education and educational policy. He has taught at the Universities of Arizona and Massachusetts, Teachers College and Stanford University, as well as universities in Australia, The Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland. Berliner also is a member of the National Academy of Education, a fellow of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences and a past president of both the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the Division of Educational Psychology of the American Psychological Association (APA). He is the recipient of awards for distinguished contributions from APA, AERA and the National Education Association (NEA).
The Research Wednesdays Speaker Series is designed to fulfill three goals: to provide a platform for explorations of new ways of conducting and disseminating educational research, to discuss new methods of mentoring doctoral students in an effort to enhance their development as researchers, and to fill a professional development need by providing access to cutting edge researchers at the state and national levels.
Research Wednesdays is held Wednesdays at 12 noon in the COE Forum, Room 1030 (30 Pryor St., Atlanta). Speaker presentations are also available for download at iTunes U.
A light lunch will be provided for those who confirm their attendance to Erin Whitney in the COE’s Educational Research Bureau at (404) 413-8090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
