Ken Zeichner to deliver CUE spring lecture
The Center for Urban Education is thrilled to announce that Ken Zeichner will visit the University of Pittsburgh on Thursday, February 23, 2017 to deliver the spring installment of CUEtalks, the center's bi-annual lecture series.
Dr. Zeichner’s talk, "The Central Role of Local Communities in Teacher Education" will explore the ways in which engaging local communities in the preparation of teachers can impact the learning of teacher candidates and the community mentors who work with them. In doing so, he will present his research concerning teacher education policy debates, comparative and international perspectives on teaching and teacher education, and community-focused teacher education.
Dr. Zeichner is the Boeing Professor of Teacher Education at the University of Washington and a former Vice President of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). He is an elected member of the National Academy of Education, and a Fellow of the American Educational Research Association and the National Education Policy Center at the University of Colorado. He received the Legacy Award from AERA’s Division K and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (2009).
CUE will have more details on Dr. Zeichner’s visit in the coming weeks.
