CEHD Research In Press: November 2023
Dr. Pempho Chinkondenji has won the 2023-2024 Gail P. Kelly Award for Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation from the Comparative & International Education Society (CIES). The award is conferred on an outstanding Ph.D. or Ed.D. dissertation that manifests academic excellence; originality; methodological, theoretical, and empirical rigor; and that deals with issues of social justice and equity in international settings. More information about the award can be found here. The award ceremony will be held in March next year at the CIES 2024 conference in Miami.
Dr. Virginia Clinton-Lisell received a Hewlet OER grant for $500,000. The funding will go towards mentorship of early-career researchers as well as Dr. Clinton-Lisell’s research in open education. Fellows in this program will receive stipends for publishing open education research as well as article processing charges covered to publish open access. In addition, fellows will be able to attend the open education conference to present their research.
Dr. Karla Fehr, with support from the Bureau of Evaluation and Research Services (BEARS), will be serving as Evaluator on a 5-year SAMHSA grant awarded to Sanford Bismarck ($300k). This project aims to increase access to transition services in southwest North Dakota for adolescents and young adults (ages 16-25) and their families.
Drs. Ethan Dahl and Karla Fehr were featured in a UND Today story about the UND Behavioral Health Initiative. The College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Education & Human Development and the College of Nursing & Professional Disciplines are the three colleges that make up the core of the initiative that seeks to recruit faculty to collaborate on research, grants and programming focused on addressing behavioral health concerns in North Dakota.
Dr. Michael Herbert joined BEARS as a research analyst this month. Michael received his Ph.D. in Education, Health & Behavior studies from UND, and returns to the college from his previous role as a data analyst in UND Online. Dr. Herbert also serves as an adjunct faculty member at Bemidji State University in the Department of Criminal Justice teaching statistics and research methods. His research interests are focused on faculty perceptions and utilization of learning analytics, in addition to faculty motivation to engage with artificial intelligence in their courses.
Robert Monette joined CEHD as a Grants Preparation officer this month. Robert comes back to UND with 29 years’ experience in Contract and Subcontract Administration, most recently working as a Grants Specialist/Sponsored Programs Officer at Turtle Mountain Community College.
CEHD faculty and students had an incredible 21 research projects accepted for presentation at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) conference (see list below), which will be in Philadelphia in April 2024.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
