CEHD Research In Press: March 2022


Diana D’Amico Pawlewicz was awarded a research grant from the Spencer Foundation entitled, “Racialized Experiences of Black Applicants in the Teacher Labor Market” Spencer Foundation  

Dr. Joonkil Ahn’s (Educational leadership) doctoral dissertation, Leadership for Learning and Teacher Self-Efficacy as the Antecedents of Teacher Collaboration, Instructional Quality, Intended Turnover, and Equitable Teaching Practice from the University of Illinois, was selected to receive a third award from the American Educational Research Association: Division A: Administration, Organization, & Leadership Outstanding Dissertation. 

Congratulations CEHD graduate students Kaisa Siipola (Higher Education student) and Makinde Omojiba (EFR PhD student) for receiving first and second place, respectively, in the “Professional, Social Sciences, Humanities, and Arts” UND GRAD event on March 3, 2022. 

Salahuddin Muhammad (EFR PhD student) published a book entitled “50 Years of Education in Bangladesh” in February 2022. The book depicted the policy and development of Primary and Secondary level education in Bangladesh in the last 50 years.  The book will help the policymakers, researchers and educationists for taking future initiatives to ensure quality education and make evidence-based policies in Bangladesh. 

Dr. Grant Tomkinson launched Australia’s fourth Physical Activity Report Card for Children and Youth, which is themed Reboot—Reimagining physically active lives. This initiative was started in 2013 and initially led by Dr. Tomkinson, although more recently is on the executive committee. Using a harmonized process and a standardized grading framework, the report reviews the available data and synthesizes the evidence to assign grades to 10 indicators related to individual physical activity behaviors, as well as sources of influence and strategies and investments. 

Please join us for the CEHD Research Fair! The event will take place on Thursday, April 7 from 11 am to 4 pm and showcase research by CEHD faculty and graduate students with presentations of 12 papers and over 20 posters (see CEHD Research Fair Flyer). The talks can be viewed on campus in Education Room 113, as well as virtually (link forthcoming). Snacks, refreshments, and coffee will be served.



Dr. Woei Hung is graduate director of the IDT program in EHBS. He earned his Ph.D. in Learning Technologies from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2003. He joined UND in 2007.

He has published numerous peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters, given presentations at international conferences, and edited books in PBL and systems modeling. He developed the 3C3R PBL problem design model and the 9-step PBL problem design process, which is a systematic conceptual framework for designing effective PBL problems. He further developed the 2nd generation of the model and published in “The Wiley Handbook of Problem-based Learning. Recently, he has been exploring the effects of microlearning in training contexts. He is currently co-editor of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, the Treasurer of the International PANPBL Association of Problem-based Learning and Active Learning Methodologies, and former Chair and Program Chair of the Problem-based & Project-based Learning SIG at AERA.

In 2018-2019, he was a Fulbright Scholar in Kyrgyzstan, training faculty and staff at University of Central Asia and American University of Central Asia, in-service teachers and directors from Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and Tajikistan on PBL and online teaching. He gave a seminar on collaborative learning to the faculty of the NIE in Singapore; received the  School of Health Professions Education Research Visits scholarship from Maastricht University in the Netherlands; gave a seminar to the doctoral students at the University College Dublin and a keynote on using technology in PBL at the FACiLiTATE 2019 PBL symposium in Limerick, Ireland.
