Dr. Donna Alvermann, University of Georgia, USA



Dr. Alvermann is the University of Georgia Appointed Distinguished Research Professor of Language and Literacy Education. She also holds an endowed chair position: The Omer Clyde and Elizabeth Parr Aderhold Professor in Education. Formerly a classroom teacher in Texas and New York, her research focuses on young people’s digital literacies and use of popular media. Dr. Alvermann’s seminar will address how popular culture is not a discourse distinct from other discourses, including adolescents’ literacy practices. Much as some accounts would have us believe that the two are unique and divide roughly along informal and formal learning, Dr. Alvermann’s research over the past twenty years or so would suggest just the opposite. In this webinar, Dr. Alvermann will critically reframe key findings from several of her earlier research projects involving adolescents’ literacy practices and popular culture for the express purpose of inviting a discussion focused on the uncertainties and complexities that went unnoticed (or at least unremarked) the first time around.
Dr. Alvermann focuses her research middle-grades through high
 school students’ comprehension and production in digital environments (including social media). One of her particular interests is in understanding how online learning tools, such as “PersuadeMe” mediate young people’s motivation and engagement in both informational and literary texts. Further, the intersections of informal learning and pop culture figure prominently in Dr. Alvermann’s professional life. She has been invited by the organizers of the 2016 SxSW festival in Austin, Texas to be a member of the mentor panel. Her speciality is: “Developing critical awareness of the need for connected learning opportunities that unite popular culture and literacy instruction, including personalized action plans for following through on that awareness. Author of numerous articles, Dr. Alvermann has several books to her credit: Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents’ Lives (3rd ed.); Adolescents’ Online Literacies: Connecting Classrooms, Digital Media, and Popular Culture; Content Area Reading and Literacy; and Bring It to Class: Unpacking Pop Culture in Literacy Learning. Among the many awards Dr. Alvermann has received are election into the Reading Hall of Fame, Computers in Research Award (ILA), Oscar Causey Award for Outstanding Contributions to Reading Research. Dr. Alvermann has recently helped to design an interactive website to learn how a community of researchers and researched objects can push boundaries associated with creating and disseminating “original” work and remixes online using a Creative Commons license (http://www.becoming3lectric.com).

April 17, 2016: Dr. Sonia Nieto, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA; “Language, Literacy, and Diversity: The Imperative for All Teachers to Address Culture, Race, and Other Differences”; 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time/USA

Dr. Sonia Nieto, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA

Dr. Sonia Nieto is Professor Emerita of Language, Literacy, and Culture, School of Education, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA. Dr. Nieto’s research interests include teacher preparation, multiculturalism,  the education of Latinos, and other culturally and linguistically diverse student populations. Dr. Nieto has published widely in such journals as Harvard Education Review, Educational Leadership, and Journal of Educational Change, as well as numerous chapters.  Dr. Nieto’s seminarwill make the case that all teachers, whether they teach ESL, language, literacy, mathematics, social studies, or anything else, need to address issues of difference with their students. Given the growing diversity of the student body in the United States and around the world, as well as classroom and school conflicts based on racism and other forms of discrimination, it is imperative that all teachers learn about and incorporate curriculum and discussions about these issues in their pedagogy. Based on Dr. Nieto’s research with classroom teachers over many years, she will make the case theoretically as well as in practical examples from courageous teachers who insist on confronting issues of social justice in their curriculum and pedagogy as a way to better prepare their students to live critically, productively, and peacefully in multicultural and multiracial societies.



Professor Nieto’s research focuses on multicultural education, teacher education, and the education of students of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, topics on which she continues to write and speak. She has written or edited eleven books including the best-selling Affirming Diversity: The Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education, a textbook widely used in teacher education programs around the nation and beyond. Other books include The Light in Their Eyes: Creating Multicultural Learning Communities (1999, 2010), Language, Culture, and Teaching  (2002, 2010), What Keeps Teachers Going? (2003), Finding Joy in Teaching Students of Diverse Backgrounds (2013), and four edited volumes, Puerto Rican Students in U.S. Schools (2000), Why We Teach (2005), Dear Paulo: Letters From Those Who Dare Teach (2008), and Why We Teach Now (2015). Dr. Nieto has received numerous awards for her scholarly work, teaching, and advocacy, including six honorary doctorates. In 1998, she was awarded an Annenberg Institute Senior Fellowship in Urban Education and in 2000, a residency at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center in Italy. In 2008, she received the Social Justice in Education Award from the American Educational Research Association (AERA), the premier professional organization for education researchers, and has also been elected as a Fellow of AERA. In addition, she was elected as a Laureate of Kappa Delta Pi honorary educational organization, a distinction limited to 60 living educators. She has been a Visiting Scholar at universities in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Spain and in 2012 she served as the Wits-Claude Distinguished Scholar at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. Dr. Nieto received the Medal of Distinguished Service, the highest honor given by Teachers College, Columbia University, in 2014. She was recently invited as an honoree for “Inside the Academy,” an online archive that recognizes the most influential scholars in education through their personal and professional histories. In addition, in 2015, she was elected as a member of the National Academy of Education.
