Distinguished Speaker Series: Luis Moll, University of Arizona
Luis Moll, professor emeritus in the University of Arizona’s College of Education, will speak to CEHD students, faculty and staff March 1 as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series.
Moll received his Ph.D. in educational psychology/early childhood development from the University of California, Los Angeles. His main research interests include the connection among culture, psychology and education, especially as it relates to the education of Latino children in the U.S. He has served on the editorial board of several journals, including the American Educational Research Journal, Educational Researcher, Reading Research Quarterly, Journal of Literacy Research, and Mind, Culture, and Activity. His co-edited volume, Funds of knowledge: Theorizing practices in households, communities, and classrooms, received the 2006 Critics’ Choice Award of the American Educational Studies Association. His most recent books are the co-edited volume, The International Handbook of Research on Children’s Literacy, Learning and Culture (2013), and the book L. S. Vygotsky and Education (2014). Moll was elected to membership in the National Academy of Education (1998), named a Kappa Delta Pi Laureate (2013) and to the Reading Hall of Fame (2014). He was also named Fellow (2009), received the Presidential Citation Award (2010) and the Palmer O. Johnson Award (2011) from the American Educational Research Association.
His presentation will discuss the following topics:

The development of household visits to document lived experiences and funds of knowledge;
Teacher study groups to analyze what can be learned from these visits;
The development of teaching innovations; and
“Translocation” work conducted in four international settings – Uganda, South Africa, Spain (Catalonia) and Australia – and what can be learned theoretically, methodologically and substantively from this work.

The Distinguished Speaker Series brings cutting-edge researchers at the state and national levels to the college on the first Wednesday of each month. Presentations are held at 12 noon (unless otherwise noted) in the College of Education and Human Development Forum, room 1030.

Distinguished Speaker Series – Kevin Guskiewicz @ CEHD room 1030
Apr 5 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Distinguished Speaker Series: Kevin Guskiewicz, University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill
Kevin Guskiewicz, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, will speak to CEHD students, faculty and staff April 5 as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series.
Guskiewicz is a neuroscientist and a nationally-recognized expert on sport-related concussions. Previously, he served as senior associate dean for the natural sciences and chair of the Department of Exercise and Sport Science. A 20-year member of Carolina’s faculty, Guskiewicz is the Kenan Distinguished Professor of Exercise and Sport Science, co-director of the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center and director of the Center for the Study of Retired Athletes. His research has focused on sport-related concussion, investigating its effect on balance and neurocognitive function in athletes and the long-term neurological issues related to playing sports. His work has garnered numerous awards, including fellowships in the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Academy of Kinesiology and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. Guskiewicz’s research has also influenced concussion guidelines and recommendations made by these organizations, the NCAA and the NFL. He was named to the NCAA’s Concussion Committee, the NFL Players Association’s Mackey-White Committee and the NFL’s Head, Neck, and Spine Committee. In 2011, he was awarded a prestigious MacArthur Fellowship for his innovative work on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of sport-related concussions. He and his colleagues used that award to help improve safety in high school sports and to help the U.S. military identify and treat serious head injuries. In 2013, Time Magazine named him a game changer, one of 18 “innovators and problem-solvers that are inspiring change in America.”
His presentation, entitled,”The state of sport concussion: Legitimate concern vs. paranoia,” will highlight facts and fallacies of sport-related concussion and concerns about the long-term effects of concussion in sport.
The Distinguished Speaker Series brings cutting-edge researchers at the state and national levels to the college on the first Wednesday of each month. Presentations are held at 12 noon (unless otherwise noted) in the College of Education and Human Development Forum, room 1030.
