If you’ve passed through Wilton High School’s music program in the past 35 years, then chances are you have your own unforgettable Chip Gawle story.
It may be summer but an educational partnership is so exciting to both Region 14 and UConn’s Neag School of Education that they couldn’t wait to get started.
After graduating, magna cum laude, with a bachelor’s degree in both History and Political Science from the University of Connecticut, Robert Stevenson felt driven to become a teacher. So he went and got his master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction, also from UConn. And the teaching profession has taken him not just across the state of Connecticut but halfway across the globe to the country of Cyprus, where he taught history, social studies and computers at the American International School.
Replication of scientific findings has been a cornerstone of validating research for generations, yet it happens so infrequently that many have claimed science is in a replication crisis. A University of Kansas special education professor has co-authored — with the Neag School’s Michael Coyne — a study on replication, its effects on the field and students, and suggests a more dynamic approach to research could help address the paucity of replication.
The UConn Chapter of PDK is pleased to announce that this year’s recipient of the Dr. Virginia J. Grzymkowski Scholarship is Ms. Kathleen M. Williamson, a doctoral student in Educational Psychology at the University of Connecticut.
