Innovations in Education, Research,
Leadership & Counseling
I am excited to share our latest news from the Lutrill & Pearl Payne School of Education. As you will see in this collection of news features, our faculty, staff, and students are involved in a variety of innovative programs and research initiatives. Some highlights: We extend a warm welcome to our two new Science Education faculty members- be sure to read about Dr. Emily Dare and Dr. Josh Ellis and their exciting research and teaching projects. I would also like to highlight our new Integrative Community Studies Program (and the program director Dr. Willie Louviere), the first postsecondary transition program to be housed at LSU. Another note of interest is that we are also offering Dual Enrollment courses for the first time in the School of Education: Teaching, Schools, and Society (EDCI 2030), and Education and Diverse Populations (EDCI 2400). We hope that by offering these courses in Louisiana high schools, we will build interest in education as a potential major and recruit more students into the teaching profession.
There is a lot going on in Peabody Hall and in the School of Education, and stay tuned for even more developments that will launch soon! From our undergraduate education students to our master’s, educational specialist, and PhD-level practitioners and scholars, our students and faculty are making an impact on our community and on our profession. We welcome you to join us in any of these partnerships and programs, and your feedback is always welcome.
