Faculty Research Talk
November 16 @ 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Join Sara Donaldson, Assistant Professor of Education for an upcoming Faculty Research Talk, Leveraging Collective Doubt to Deepen Learning.
Presenters will begin by discussing their topic, and each session will close with a question and answer segment. All presentations are virtual and free and the Zoom link will be sent the day before this discussion.
Transformational change within social contexts, such as schools, requires a cohesive vision and action plan. This work can be promoted by providing the individuals involved with structured opportunities to collectively grapple with the nuances of terminology and facets of related initiatives in terms of expectations for what the work looks like in practice. Using narrative data collected from field research with mathematics instructional leaders, this faculty research talk will unpack a five-phase framework shown to provide this needed structure. By positioning moments of doubt as opportunities for collaborative learning, this framework serves as a flexible structure to guide shared knowledge development from the initial identification of a shared goal to cohesive understanding and systemic transformation.
