Our Most Recent Webinar:
Dionne Cross Francis is the Joseph R. Neikirk Term Professor in the Culture, Curriculum and Teacher Education Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her research focuses on identifying the contextual, cultural and teacher-specific factors that influence teacher actions as they plan and instruct. By deepening our understanding of these factors, we can determine the optimal design features of professional development that allow teachers to thrive. Results of this work have informed the design and implementation of professional development initiatives in the US (Indiana, Georgia) and internationally [Ghana, Jamaica, Kosovo, South Sudan, Turkey].
