"From Reacting to Re-imagining: Using Pandemic Adaptations for Program Advancement"
Impacting Education | Journal on Transforming Professional Practice
January 2024

Amy Markos, clinical associate professor; Ray Buss, professor; and Josephine Marsh, associate professor and associate director, doctoral (EdD) programs

This paper explores how MLFTC’s EdD in Leadership and Innovation program, a 2018 recipient of a Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate, has evolved in recent years with a particular focus on three areas: program growth, changes to students’ professional contexts and student well-being. The authors consider how pandemic-era adaptations led to the program’s evolution and advancement while sharing perspectives and reflective questions that can inform other academic teams in the process of redesigning their own programs.

"Empowering Teachers for Equitable and Sustainable Education: Action Research, Teacher Agency, and Online Community"
Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, publisher
April, 2024

Maria Tatto, professor

With Tatto serving as editor, this book uses a comprehensive study of a novel Master of Education program to showcase how teachers can be engaged in authoritative equity-based research, using comparative education theory, inquiry-based pedagogy, and the UNESCO sustainable development goals as powerful frameworks. By developing agency to advance culturally sustaining and humanizing practices, it demonstrates how teachers can promote equity in their classrooms and communities. The central premise of the program is that teachers must become comparative, global, and local action researchers to have agency in their practice and to become effective advocates for the cultural and learning needs of their students, especially those in disadvantaged contexts
