CEHD Research In Press: March 2023
Dr. Radomir (Ray) Mitic (EHBS, Higher Education) was recently interviewed for an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education regarding his recent paper and work in Russia. The article is entitled, Slamming the Door on Scholarship: War and politics could make on-the-ground study of China and Russia difficult, if not impossible.
Dr. Caitlin Brecklin (postdoc) received the Outstanding Dissertation Award from the Districts in Research and Reform Special Interest Group, and will be honored at AERA in April.
Dr. Grace Keengwe received a fellowship from the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (CADFP), which is a competitive scholar fellowship program for educational projects at African higher education institutions. Offered by Scholar Academic Partnerships Institute of International Education, the program is funded by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY) for African institutions in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda to host an African-born scholar to work in projects in research collaboration, graduate student teaching/mentoring and curriculum co-development.
Congratulations to the 23 CEHD graduate students who presented at the UND Graduate Research Achievement Day (GRAD) March 2 and 3 (see list of presenting students below with program and title). A special congratulations to the two award winners! Michael Herbert (Higher Education PhD) 2nd place in Professional, Social Science, Arts, and Humanities category on March 2 (on-campus), and Allyson Muehlemann (Educational Practice and Leadership EdD) 1st place on March 3 (virtual).
The Initiative for Rural Education, Equity, and Economic Development (I-REEED) continues to move forward with exciting research examining educational issues across the state. Currently the I-REEED team is collecting data for a project in partnership with North Dakota Small Organized Schools examining the impact of juvenile justice reform on rural schools. In the first phase of the study, they surveyed school and district leaders across the state, and they are now beginning to conduct focus group interviews of administrators, teachers, and school counselors about their experiences. They are also developing several new projects, including one looking at the experiences of international teachers in North Dakota public schools and another that explores high school students’ perceptions of teaching as a career.
Look forward in the future to a paper reporting on a study of teacher recruitment and retention conducted with faculty throughout CEHD, as well as a chapter in the forthcoming edited volume Handbook on the Politics of Education, “The Politics of Rural Education: Teacher Staffing and the Diversity of Rurality.”
I-REEED invites everyone to their webinar coming later this spring (tentatively Wednesday, April 26 from 6:00-8:00pm CT): Rural Education Policy Summit—Spotlight on Teacher Recruitment and Retention, part II. This session will feature a panel discussion between North Dakota school leaders who are taking innovative steps to promote teacher recruitment and retention. It promises to be a fascinating discussion!
I-REEED also invites collaboration with researchers at UND and elsewhere. If you are interested in potentially working with I-REEED on a study, contact Dr. Diana D’Amico Pawlewicz (diana.pawlewicz@UND.edu).
CEHD faculty are in bold, and CEHD students are underlined.
