The College of Education, Information and Technology will host a lecture with Nel Noddings as part of their ongoing Dean’s Lecture Series. Hosted in conjunction by LIU Post and SCOPE Education Services, Noddings will go over topics in her book, “Teaching Controversial Issues.” The event will begin at 12 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 9, in the Tilles Center Patrons Lounge.
Noddings is a mentor of Post’s very own professor of education, Shaireen Rasheed, who was featured for her use of controversial topics in her multiculturalism classes in the October 18 issue of the Pioneer.
In addition to writing 22 books, Noddings, a professor of education at Stanford University, has also authored over 300 articles and chapters on topics ranging from the ethics of care to mathematical problem solving. Noddings is a past president of the National Academy of Education, the Philosophy of Education Society and the John Dewey Society.
The lecture is open to all students and faculty, and there will be a complimentary lunch. Due to limited space, those interested must RSVP at anastasia.karathanasis@ liu.edu.
