Later, Dr. Steinberg will facilitate a talk on issues of diversity in education. This talk will take place from 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. in 108 Tyson.

The event for graduate students will entail Dr. Shirley Steinberg facilitating a workshop for students about how their critical research in education can be published, in addition to the networking outlets that are available to do so. She will also be available to talk to some graduate students about their work individually.

Later at the Diversity Talk Dr. Steinberg will facilitate a talk on issues of diversity in education. Members of the Curriculum and Instruction Graduate Student Association (CIGSA) will lead a discussion that focuses on the ways in which Penn State students can benefit from diverse perspectives as they further their education. Furthermore (for those who will become educators), this talk will focus on methods of implementing diverse perspectives within pedagogical frameworks.
