Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, will discuss educational policy and the new schools model with College of Education students, faculty and staff on Nov. 9 as part of the college’s Research Wednesdays Speaker Series.
Before his appointment at the foundation, Levine was president and professor of education at Teachers College, Columbia University (1994-2006). He also previously served as a faculty member and chair of the Institute for Educational Management at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (1989-1994), president of Bradford College (1982-89), and senior fellow at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and Carnegie Council on Policy Studies in Higher Education (1975-82). Levine is the author of scores of articles and reviews, including a series of reports for the Education Schools Project on the preparation of school leaders, teachers and education researchers.
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.
