Workshop Proposal Form
Lynn Kline elected to lead Ohio Association of Teacher Educators
The LeBron James Family Foundation College of Education is pleased to announce that Dr. Lynn Kline, associate professor of Early Childhood in the Department of Curricular & Instructional Studies, has been named president of the Ohio Association of Teacher Educators (OATE) and is Chair of OCTEO for the 2017-2018 academic year.
OCTEO is an umbrella organization that brings together the efforts of five Ohio educational organizations that focus on educator preparation. OCTEO meets twice each year for a three-day conference with topical sessions on current and future trends in education featuring keynote speakers from around the country and state-level updates.
The theme of the Fall 2017 conference is Trauma Informed Practice: Recognition and Support in School Communities. Faculty and teacher educators will convene in Dublin, Ohio, to learn and focus on positive steps that will encourage understanding of family circumstances, community environments, health and economic issues, which influence the lives of PK-20 students.
There is a saying, "We cannot control the wind, but we can adjust our sails." As educators, we must share responsibility, within the community, to adjust the sails and effectively collaborate with community agencies to support all student learners. This is a very timely topic for the LJFF College of Education faculty as well as teachers across Ohio, as the theme for this year deals heavily with Trauma Informed Care, Trauma Informed Classroom, Educator Conduct/Ethics, Trauma Counseling, Legal Issues for Teachers, Opioid Strategies for Ohio, School Resource Counselors, and Psychology & Mental Health Counseling. The Ohio Governor’s Task Force on Opiods, Senator Peggy Lehner, and more will present on these critical components of education today.
It is not too late to submit proposals for the Fall 2017 conference, which will be held October 25-27.
Education faculty secure grant to scale community mentorship initiative
Drs. Brad Maguth, Kristin Koskey and Al Daviso have been awarded a $99,974 Community Connector Grant Award through the Ohio Department of Education. Reviewers rated their 2017 grant proposal among the highest in the state. There were 187 applications received requesting nearly $18 million.
“In three years, we’ve surpassed more than a quarter of a million dollars to support this innovative community engagement model, and we’re excited our University, its faculty and students are at the forefront of this successful collaborative,” notes Maguth, an associate professor of social studies education. The grant funds support academically vulnerable students in grades 5, 7, 10, 11 and 12 in the Barberton City Schools by providing access to role models that help youth develop skills that lead to success in school, in the workplace and in civic life. In the last two years, more than 5,800 mentorship hours have been invested in over 200 Barberton youth.
