To teach, learn, and lead democratically requires the individual to engage in problem posing and in critiquing taken-for-granted narratives of power and privilege…Educators must do justice to the larger social, public, and institutional responsibility of our positions, and we must exercise courage in creating opportunities for change

UNCG School of Education Faculty:

My name is Mallory Nye and I am the Undergraduate Representative from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro for The Triad Teaching Fellows Education Conference, formerly known as The Triad Teaching Fellows Leadership Conference. This Conference centers around: Technology, Leadership, Common Core, STEM, Literacy, ELL, Special Education, Assessment, Diverse Learners, and Specialty Areas (Drama, Art, Physical Education, Occupational Therapy, etc.). Our targeted group consists of pre-service teachers in all academic areas of study as well as high school students in “Project Persist” and “Teacher Cadets.”

I would like to extend an opportunity for you all to present at this year’s conference at UNCG on March 2, 2013. Your expertise and knowledge in these fields will definitely benefit future teachers.

Further details regarding presenter registration for this event will be sent out on October 19, 2012. Please keep an eye out for this opportunity.

Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to working with you.

Sincerely,

Mallory Nye

He has also been invited to provide a training workshops on advocacy and outreach at the North Carolina Library Association’s Leadership Academy for NC library directors.

At the University level Anthony has also been recently asked to serve on a new University committee, the Division of Continual Learning Advisory Committee (DAC), by the new interim Dean of DCL Jim Eddy and also asked to reprise his role as the chair of the UNCG social sciences faculty grants subcommittee, which reviews all internal UNCG faculty grant applications in the social sciences.

Belinda Hardin participated in the 2012 Forum of the Global Partnership on Children with Disabilities at UNICEF in New York on September 14-15. The purpose of the meeting was to develop action plans to ensure children with disabilities are high on the global agenda in the post Millennium Development Goals for 2015-2030. UNICEF is currently conducting a research project on the education of teachers for children with disabilities worldwide and would like as many organizations as possible to complete an online survey. You can complete the survey online at:: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1002062/Inclusive-Teacher-Development  (English).

 

An article about Joseph Hill’s book was in the Washington Post. The article can be found here: Sign language that African Americans use is different from that of whites

 

The UNCG presence was strong during the Southern Association for Counselor Education and Supervision conference, September 27-29, 2012, in Savannah, Georgia.  Nine CED faculty members (Borders, Cashwell, Gonzalez, Hines, Mobley, Murray, Myers, Wester, and Young), 18 current students (doctoral and master’s), and 24 alumni from across the southeast (and beyond!) were involved in 47 research reports and practice presentations.  In addition, four doctoral students and one alum were selected to participate in the SACES Emerging Leaders Fellowship Program:  Lucy Lewis, Amber Pope, Laura Shannonhouse, and Ben Willis.
