Judson's Graduate Programs in Literacy Education to Host Research Colloquium
(ELGIN, IL – March 14, 2017) Judson University’s Graduate Programs in Literacy Education will host an hour-long research colloquium on Tuesday, April 11, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Creekside South Education Building (1151 N. State St., Elgin).
The department sponsors two such events each academic year. “The colloquium was designed to present a series entitled, ‘And the Research Suggests...,’ to provide an opportunity to highlight scholarship as one of the fundamental values of the Judson Literacy community,” said Dr. Joseph Rumenapp, assistant professor of Literacy Education.
The spring colloquium guest speaker will be Dr. Jacquelynn S. Popp, a visiting assistant professor at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Ill. Her discussion topic will be “Methodological Considerations for Analyzing Teachers’ Situated Learning about Supporting Students’ Historical Literacies.”
Dr. Popp is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago's Learning Sciences program. She specializes in elementary education and K-12 literacy instruction. Her research focuses on teacher learning and literacy within and across the disciplines, and her work has been published in notable journals such as the “Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy” and “Teaching and Teacher Education.”
No registration is required for this event, which is free and open to the public.
