Spring 2018 Dean's Lecture Series, March 15, 2018 - "Knowing is not enough: from awareness to praxis"

March 15, at 6 p.m., in the JSAC Ballroom. A lecture from Dr. Patricia Alvarez McHatton, Dean of the College of Education at the University of Texas Rio Grande ValleyHow do we shift the focus from what do we need to do, to why we are not doing it? How do we hold ourselves accountable for the changes we espouse as necessary? How do we remain cognizant of the need for vigilance and continuous attention given the nature of wicked problems? What can we learn from our P-12 learners that can inform our efforts? How do we shift from one-size-fits all perspectives that leads us to search for a magic bullet, to a deep understanding of the importance of attending to context, content, and learner? The goal of this presentation is to engage in dialogue with participants to explore these and other questions that can shed light on how we move from awareness to praxis.
