'see tomorrow.' Speaker Series Continues With CELT Director Kathi Kern

Published: Feb 24, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 24, 2014) — Kathi Kern, director of the University of Kentucky Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), will engage with the UK community next Thursday, as the third speaker in the "see tomorrow Speaker Series."

 

Kathi Kern, an associate professor in the UK Department of History, is an innovator in her own classrooms and brings energy and enthusiasm to the teaching enterprise at UK. She will speak at 3 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, in the William T. Young Library Auditorium.

 

Her speech, which will focus on pedagogy and use of technology in the classroom, is titled,

“From the Ground Up: Faculty Innovation and the Future of Teaching and Learning at the University of Kentucky.”

  

Kern has won UK's Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Teaching (1995), the Alumni Great Teacher Award (2003) and the College of Education's "Teachers Who Make a Difference" Award (2001, 2004). She has authored several successful grants funded through the Teaching American History Grant program of the U.S. Department of Education with awards totaling nearly $4 million. Kern also served as the Stanley Kelley Jr. Visiting Associate Professor for Distinguished Teaching at Princeton University, 2009-2010.

 

Her presentation follows two other nationally recognized speakers who engaged with the campus earlier this semester. UK professor of educational policy studies John Thelin, whose book "A History of Higher Education in America" is considered a seminal work in examining the development of American higher education, spoke about "Higher Education’s New Deal in the 21st Century." David Attis, a practice manager with the Education Advisory Board, spoke to the UK community about both research and major trends in American higher education.

 

Speakers will discuss different aspects of the strategic plan each month. It's a process that Provost Christine Riordan says she wants to continue even after the adoption of the Strategic Plan in June.

 

"President Capilouto and I strongly believe that "see tomorrow: The University of Kentucky Strategic Plan" cannot be a document that simply sits on a shelf. It must inform what we value as an institution, how we bring those values to life and how we fund those aspirations," Riordan said. "An ongoing speaker series provides an avenue to continually remind us all that the strategic plan is never complete. It is an ongoing process of continuous improvement and aspiring to do more on behalf of the Commonwealth we serve."
