Panel discussion will feature alumni of Lesley University’s Ph.D. Program in Educational Studies
Tuesday, March 12, 2013
The panel will explore the role of collaboration in research, featuring alumni of Lesley University’s Ph.D. program in Educational Studies Sadie Burton-Goss, Meenakshi Chhabra and Amy Rutstein-Riley; Chhabra and Rutstein-Riley (pictured) are now Lesley faculty members. Paul Naso, faculty member in Lesley’s Ph.D. program in Educational Studies, will moderate the discussion.
Those interested in the impact of educational research, as well as its ability to be ethically responsive in its use and potential effect on people’s lives, will benefit from this conversation.
The annual lecture is held in honor of Lesley Professor Emeritus George Hein, Founding Director of the Ph.D. Program in Educational Studies, who will provide a response following the panel discussion. Dr. Hein also founded the Program Evaluation and Research Group (PERG) at Lesley in 1976, which evaluates projects that serve learners in both formal and informal settings – from K–12 and higher education, to museums and community centers.
The discussion will be held Thursday, March 28, 4:30-6:30pm, in the 2nd Floor Amphitheater of University Hall on Lesley University’s Porter Campus, 1815 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge.
A reception, free and open to the public, will follow.
The event is sponsored by the Graduate School of Education and the Ph.D. Program in Educational Studies.
Lesley’s Ph.D. in Educational Studies is designed for students who wish to pursue advanced study and scholarship, and make an intellectual contribution to their fields of interests.
