Meredith Professors Present Results of Their Special Projects for Faculty Colleagues, Academic Leaders

Professor Kelly Chandler-Olcott was one of two Laura J. and L. Douglas Meredith Professors of Teaching Excellence who gave presentations on their Meredith projects during Syracuse University’s annual Meredith Professorship Dinner on Dec. 13 in the Schine Student Center’s Goldstein Auditorium.

Chandler-Olcott’s project, “Designing for Ambitious Education in an Equitable Society,” focused on developing a signature education course as a required introduction to the field for all undergraduate students entering the School of Education’s teacher education programs as well as an elective for other interested students. The course, co-taught by a faculty team representing multiple academic disciplines, addressed some of the compelling, often controversial issues that are debated in the field both in the U.S. and beyond.
