Global Center Faculty Grants

We are pleased to announce the Spring 2012 recipients of Global Center Faculty Grant.

  • Dr. Heather Latimmer
  • Dr. Todd M. Edwards
  • Dr. Sarina Chugani Molina
  • Dr. C. Bobbi Hansen

Dr. Lattimer’s project is a case study which explores the viability and impact of learner-centered, emancipatory pedagogies. The research explores the impact on students and teachers at Daraja Academy, a Kenyan secondary school.

Dr. Molina is carrying out a study which will result in the publication of an article in a refereed journal. The study is a survey of international students who have recently graduated from the University of San Diego’s TESOL program and those currently within the program.

Dr. Hansen’s project is entitled “Internationalizing the Credential Curriculum: An Examination of the Efficacy of Practices and Training Paradigms by a Teacher Education Department to Produce Globally Competent Teachers.” This project is expected to result in a refereed journal article examining the Department of Learning and Teaching’s implementation of a strategic goal to produce globally competent teachers.

Dr.Edwards is co-authoring a book chapter entitled “Multimorbidity in Primary Care Mental Health” for an edited book entitled Companion to Primary Care Mental Health, which will be published by Radcliffe in 2012.

We wish all the recipients of the grant a successful project, and look forward to seeing fruitful outcomes.
