David Hursh, associate professor in the Teaching and Curriculum Program at the Warner Graduate School of Education at the University of Rochester, will present, “Education for Sustainable Development in Sub-Saharan Africa: The Earth Institute’s Millennium Development Project” with College of Education students, faculty and staff March 16.
Hursh is a visiting research scholar at the Earth Institute at Columbia University and an adjunct associate professor in the university’s School for International and Public Affairs. He is on partial leave from the Warner Graduate School of Education at the University of Rochester, where he is an associate professor in the Teaching, Curriculum, and Change Program. He recently co-authored a book entitled, “Teaching Environmental Health to Children: An Interdisciplinary Approach.”
This special presentation is part of the college’s Research Wednesdays Speaker Series, which 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.
Hursh’s presentation will take place at 12 noon in room 654 of the COE (30 Pryor St., Atlanta).
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.
