School of Education: Educator Perspectives Series: Thriving as Scholars, Serving as Educators
In this webinar, there will be discussion of the challenges and benefits people face when returning to graduate school. Hear from Loyola faculty and first year graduate students as they discuss innovative approaches and available resources that helped them to thrive in graduate school while continuing to serve their local communities as educators. Our students will share some valuable strategies on how they have transitioned to graduate school during this transformative time, provide tips for balancing school and full-time teaching/service and how they have been able to immediately apply what they have learned. This discussion will be moderated by Dr. Leak K. Saal, co-director and associate professor of the literacy education program for the School of Education.
