Doctoral students master an academic discipline, but they don't always spend time learning a vital skill for future professors: How to teach at the undergraduate and graduate level.
A new series of workshops sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is giving Penn GSE students a better understanding of how to manage a college classroom and communicate complex ideas.
High-quality academic content isn’t the only thing the editors of Penn GSE’s Perspectives on Urban Education are busy preparing this fall. They are also preparing the next generation of scholars to successfully publish research and review that of their peers. For 2015-2016 editors-in-chief Robert LeBlanc and Geeta Aneja, mentoring fellow graduate students is a significant aspect of their work with the student-run digital journal.

Philadelphia has always been a city of great musicians. But financial challenges have chipped away at the system that gave many city students a chance to train and play with world-class talents.

In schools across the United States, Black students are punished more severely than their peers. But nowhere are Black students suspended or expelled more than in the South.

Earlier this month, Penn GSE played host to EdCamp Leadership, an “unconference” bringing together school leaders to think about new approaches to professional development.
EdCamp is a free conference where educators create their own agenda, based on attendees' expertise and needs.
Ruth Neild, a former Penn GSE faculty member, was recently appointed Deputy Director of Policy and Research at the Institute of Education Sciences (IES). Joy Lesnick, who earned her doctorate in education policy from Penn GSE in 2006, is the new Commissioner at the National Center on Education Evaluation (NCEE), one of four centers at IES. Though they are no longer at Penn, Neild and Lesnick remain rooted and connected in Philadelphia, commuting daily to Washington D.C. from 30th Street Station.
