    in Education

    Our October 28th episode will feature guests: Catherine Brown (Inquiry librarian for lead, exhibits, and programs at UCLA Powell Library) & Amy Homma (Manager of Digital Learning Program, ARTLAB+ Hirshhorn).


    We will be discussing how to push the envelope and break barriers as it relates to teaching and learning in the 21st century. It can all be summed up to the term – exposure.  Exposing students and/or the university community to new ways of being creative to inspire and influence not only their respective audience, but colleagues and facilitators as well.  Our guests will speak upon their unique initiatives and how these ideas have been a benefit to their community.

Along this path she has made some amazingly powerful discoveries which we can all use for our own self-empowerment.

    SED 583 - Socio-Cultural Dimensions of Free-Choice Learning Intro to Module 4

    in Education

    In Module 4 we will be discussing the socio-cultural dimensions of institutions, moving beyond the nominal definition of them as organizations housed in buildings, to a socio-cultural definition in which institutions include all types of socially constructed organizations: families, museums, schools, communities, and society. Some of the questions we will discuss include: How do groups, communities and societies use and appropriate the resources of free-choice learning institutions to support their “institutional” needs, interests and identities? How have cultural institutions historically supported/inhibited the socio-cultural dimensions and outcomes of learning?  What strategies and approaches have they employed to try to be socio-culturally relevant?  Our special guest is Laura Huerta Migus, who took the helm as executive director of the Association of Children's Museums (ACM) this past June. Prior to that, Laura was Director of Professional Development and Inclusion Initiatives at the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) where she previously also held the position of Director of Equity and Diversity. Laura also served on the staff at ACM from 2004-2006, as a program officer for education and operations.  Laura Huerta Migus is a nonprofit professional with more than a decade of experience in professional development, technical assistance, and grant management with a special emphasis on informal learninglearning.environments and community change efforts.  She is currently working with institutions nationally to help them become more culturally competent and responsible so that they can be effective change agents in their communities.  I think it will be a great conversation!

    Please join Lynn Dierking, Lena Hosking and Michelle Mileham, as we introduce Module 3 of the SED 583 course--Sociocultural Dimensions of Free-Choice Learning.  In this module we will explore culture in more depth, learning about social stratification, agency, social structure and social institutions; examining the dance between the power of human agency and social structures and how people work to maintain agency and sustain their own agendas that may be different from those of the establishments within which they are operating. We will start the show by talking about the final class project.  Our very special guest will be Dr. Scott Pattison, Research & Evaluation Strategist, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) & Director for Administration, Institute for Learning Innovation, Portland, OR.  Scott will be talking about his Master and Doctoral research, focused on families, inside and outside OMSI.  As a graduate of this same program, I'm sure he will be happy to answer more general questions also.
