The School of Education’s Education Lecture Series will present a talk by Liz Stosich, Ph.D., of Fordham University, at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 3, in Room 254, Busch Student Center.
Stosich is an assistant professor at Fordham University. She is a faculty member in the Educational Leadership, Administration, and Policy Division. Stosich draws on perspectives in education, organizational theory, and sociology to understand how organizational and social contexts influence the relationship between policy and the practice of leaders and teachers in public schools. She aims to identify how state, district, school and teacher leaders can improve the equity and quality of educational opportunities for all students, with particular attention to historically underserved children.
Her research interests include education policy, assessment and accountability, school and district leadership, school improvement and teachers’ professional learning. She uses interview, observational, case-study and survey methods.
Lunch will precede the talk.
The series is co-sponsored by the School of Education and Office of the Vice President for Research.
