Goodchild Conducted A National Faculty Workshop
Les Goodchild recently organized and conducted a national workshop, the first Early Career Faculty Teaching Workshop, for the Council for the Advancement of Higher Education Programs at the Association for the Study of Higher Education annual meeting in Jacksonville, Florida from November 5 to 6. As the council’s elected program chair, he designed the workshop that brought together 27 assistant professors from around the country, who were nominated by the program directors, to hear and participate in panels on teaching five different content areas in higher education (namely, history of higher education, curriculum and instruction, diversity and gender, administration and organization, and faculty issues) and on dissertation advising. Senior faculty from the University of Michigan, Columbia University’s Teachers College, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Pennsylvania, University of Kansas, University of Massachusetts Boston, Seton Hall University, and Santa Clara University comprised these two invited panels.
At the workshop, Goodchild presented an opening address, “Joy and Hunger: Listening to the Voice of Vocation in Your Life,” prepared by Professor Jennifer Haworth, Loyola University of Chicago, participated in the invited panel presentation on dissertation advising by giving, “Assisting the Dissertation Researcher,” and offered the introductory remarks to the workshop’s concluding address, “Rethinking the Doctorate: Responding to Emerging Conditions,” by Dr. Chris Golde, Associate Provost for Graduate Studies at Stanford University and former Senior Scholar at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
On that weekend, Goodchild also attended the History of Education Society annual conference in Tampa, Florida from November 7 to 8, where he gave a short overview at its Business meeting of his Ad Hoc Report to the History of Education Society Board, “Preliminary Report on the Condition of the History of Education as a Requirement for the Teaching Credential and Degrees in American Schools of Education,” which had been invited by the Society’s President Harold Wechsler, professor of education at New York University.
