Tags: goldin, khasnabis, oconnor, reischl, teacher education

A School of Education team composed of Debi Khasnabis, Clinical Assistant Professor; Simona Goldin, Research Specialist; Cathy Reischl, Clinical Associate Professor; and Carla O’Connor, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, have been awarded a Transforming Learning for a Third Century Discovery grant. The $50,000 award from the Office of the Provost will support their project titled, “The Family Centered Education Experience: Preparing New Teachers for Understanding and Teaching in Diverse Communities.” The project will create opportunities for future interns in the elementary education teacher certification program to interact multiple times with the family of a Scarlett Middle School student. Through these opportunities, interns will develop their understandings of the school community and of families’ experiences within the community. The project design is influenced by the Family Centered Experience, a curricular opportunity offered through the U-M School of Medicine, and supports the work of the Mitchell Scarlett Teaching and Learning Collaborative.

Transforming Learning for a Third Century (TLTC) is one of four programs encompassing the $50 million Third Century Initiative—along with M-Cubed, Global Challenges for a Third Century and the Learning Analytics Task Force.
