    Searching for the Castle-Backtrailof an Adoption-Barbara Ohrstrom

    in Family

    Join us Friday September 19th@ 10:00 EDT as Pam Kroskie interviews Barbara Ohrstrom


    Like cowboys turning in the saddle to look at where they came from, Searching for the Castle documents the backtrail of author Barbara Leigh Ohrstrom’s adoption. It begins with her urgency as an eighteen-year-old woman initiating her search for her birth parents. Her recollection includes court petitions, letters, Division of Social Service documents, and other original documents usually buried behind the lock and key of the law.


    In this memoir, she narrates the unearthing of her history and that of her family. Some of her discoveries are filled with pain, while others are joyful, including locating sisters, another brother, and eventually nieces and a nephew. A story of how one woman comes to terms with her identity, Searching for the Castle tells of real people doing the best they can to live and love in the often heartbreaking circumstances of life.


    As Ohrstrom shares her journey to find her birth parents, she reveals her emotions throughout the process, discovering that her identity is self-created, but also that her being is governed, in part, by her ancestors and family lines. Searching for the Castle communicates the message that love creates families and that the family to which Ohrstrom belonged in foster care gave her a mother, father, and family filled with love and decency.

    More Than Just A Good Idea: Education Research to Guide Product Development

    in Education

    November


    More than Just a Good Idea: Education Research Guide to Product Development


    Ideas abound for new teaching methodologies, and curriculum, and each claims to be innovative and effective. Governments throughout the world fund a wealth of research into educational strategies and instructional design every year, yet we find that these communities often don’t communicate well with each other. It is not unusual for popular educational solutions to lack research into their effectiveness and how best they can be applied. Equally unusual, many educational research programs, in which curriculum is developed, never see the commercial light of day, or broad distribution.


    We will examine what educational research brings to improving products today and in the future and how publishers can take advantage of research findings to improve their offerings. 


    Host Michael Jay and our leading education thinkers will contemplate the following:



    How closely tied is today’s research programs to educational practice?
    Where are there challenges for the research community in working with commercial vendors?
    How are requirements at funding agencies changing to bring these communities closer together?
    How are our universities and research institutions working to accommodate the commercialization of products from their research?
    How can publishers reach out to the research community to improve their offerings and gain greater credibility with the educational community?
