Texas A&M University’s School of Education and Human Development (SEHD) will host a meeting of two renowned and respected minds in teacher education with a combined 90+ years of experience.
Marilyn Cochran-Smith and Gloria Ladson-Billings, both National Academy of Education members, will share their perspectives on navigating K-12 education in a conversation moderated by SEHD professor Cheryl Craig.
“This is a remarkable and rare opportunity to hear from two giants in our field together on stage,” said Michael A. de Miranda, dean of SEHD. “Hosting an event of this magnitude exemplifies our school’s commitment to lead the conversation in teacher education.”
The event, titled “Dialogues in Transforming Education,” will be available to stream live on Wednesday, March 29, from 5–6 p.m. CT.
Also on March 29, Cochran-Smith will start the day with the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture. She will discuss “The ‘Problem’ of Teacher Education: Tensions and Trends.” You can attend the event in person or stream it live from 10:45 a.m. to noon.
