TIP Fellows Amanda Schear and Charlie McGeehan participated in The University of Pennsylvania’s 40th Ethnography in Education Research Forum, February 22 – 23, 2019 at the Graduate School of Education. This year’s theme, “The Future of Ethnography and Education: Methodologies, Equity, and Ethics” covered a wide range of topics in educational research, both local and international. The conference featured a full day of presentations and workshops led by educational practitioners.

Amanda Schear led a session entitled: “When Teachers Lead the Learning: An Inquiry Approach to Professional Development”. The session offered opportunities for participants to hear about the implementation of an inquiry model of schoolwide professional development at a Philadelphia public high school. Charlie McGeehan was a member of a panel entitled: “Reimagining Senior Project: Tackling Wicked Problems”. The session showcased the way the U School has reimagined the senior project process in order to make the resulting work richer and more complex.
