Walter Secada, senior associate dean and chair of the Department of Teaching and Learning in the School of Education at the University of Miami, will speak to College of Education students, faculty and staff March 13 as part of the Research Wednesdays Speaker Series.
Since joining the University of Miami faculty in 2003, Secada has served as associate director and co-PI of Promoting Science among English Language Learners (P-SELL) and has worked on the development of a secondary-school mathematics and science academy that will be built on the University of Miami South Campus property. His research interests include equity in education, mathematics education, bilingual education, school restructuring, professional development of teachers, student engagement, and reform.
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 College of Education 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 college’s Educational Research Bureau at 404-413-8090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
