The Department of Curriculum and Instruction in Baylor's School of Education (SOE) is sponsoring a lecture by Dr. William H. Schubert, an expert on John Dewey and his educational philosophies.
The lecture will be Thursday, Feb. 6, from 5-6:30 p.m. in Marrs McLean Science Building, Room 301.
"Bill Schubert is one of the nation's leaders in curriculum studies and in the study of John Dewey and progressive education," said Dr. Gretchen Schwarz, professor of curriculum and instruction in the SOE. "He is both scholarly and entertaining -- students will have an intense but enjoyable experience, causing them to think deeply about American education."
Schubert is professor emeritus of curriculum and instruction at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he taught from 1975 to 2012. He also is a University Scholar there and served as coordinator of doctoral and master's programs and director of graduate studies.
He has published 16 books, more than 200 articles and book chapters, numerous book reviews, and several poems. His textbook Curriculum: Perspective, Paradigm, and Possibility was recognized as the most influential textbook for several decades.
Schubert continues to work on international education research and collaborates frequently with his spouse, Ming Fang He, with whom he has published several studies.
