Social Justice, Oral History, and Inquiry into Practice

Presenters: Niki Christodoulou, Molly Quinn, and Darla Linville, Augusta University

Abstract: Continuing the conversation from Augusta University’s plenary session, this learning exchange explores the possibilities oral history presents to take up social justice issues and develop curriculum for k-12 classrooms in our Ed.D. Program.  We ask: What questions of practice might be served by knowing more about the local histories from and through which we do our work related to social justice? Using a critical theory perspective, we examine the creation of institutions in which inequalities exist and are replicated or contested.

2.  Emancipatory Action Research Dissertations in Practice

Abstract - The structure for the proposed Learning Exchange will be the presentation of EDCS 720 Introduction to Diversity and the Curriculum and EDCS 820 Advanced Diversity and the Curriculum within the EdD C&I (CS) Program at USC. These two required diversity courses working conjunction with our Action Research courses to enable our learners to develop as critical action researchers who act as participant-researchers and who build reciprocal relationships with their research subjects in order to develop the necessary methods that will enable them to achieve a sophisticated level of practice undergirded by diversity and to apply their concrete projects with the development of a theoretical and methodological Action Plan for their school and/or other social institution that is cyclical and iterative.

Target Audience: Interdisciplinary Leadership

3. Rethinking, Redesigning, and Implementing Comprehensive Exams with CPED Principles: A Comprehensive Approach
