EDUC 800 WAYS OF KNOWING
Dr. Schrum promised that at the end of this class we would think about education and culture differently.  I’ve never been absolutist, so I was quite comfortable with this promise.  I was pleased to learn about the history of Cartesian empiricism and reflect on the welcome but restricting influence it has had on modern science.  Bruner and Khun offered a modern paradigm for learning and culture that seems more consistent with my epistemological view of mathematics learning.  Finally, Women’s Ways of Knowing validated my view that others, particularly women, learn mathematics differently than what is currently taught.

EDUC 802 LEADERSHIP SEMINAR
Dr. Galluzzo challenged us to write in this class, and he challenged us to write about topics that were wholly unfamiliar.  However, he asked us to connect the unfamiliar readings on leadership philosophy and strategy, from the most banal to the most considered, to our own professional experience.

EDUC 805 DOCTORAL SEMINAR IN EDUCATION
Dr. Gorrell arranged a comprehensive survey of the projects going on at George Mason, in the CEHD.  I made many decisions about the faculty that I wanted to meet, and from whom I wanted to take classes.  We also spent a great deal of time talking about the principles of the Community of Practice, which I have been actively applying to the online courses I manage in my work.
