College of Education
Mike Karlin, assistant professor of liberal studies and director of the Snap Inc. Institute for Technology & Education, is co-principal investigator for “Micro-Credentials for Integrating Computing Responsibly into Other (MICRO) Domains in Colleges of Education,” which will develop a model for teaching computing skills to future educators from different disciplines.
In partnership with other institutions, CSUDH received a one-year, $418,509 grant from the National Science Foundation to support the research.
Assistant Professor of Teacher Education Minhye Son co-wrote the article “‘Culture is Where I Come From’: An Analysis of Cultural Competence of Student Teachers of Color in Early Childhood Education,” published in the Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education. The study delves into the cultural competence of early childhood student teachers of color (ECSToC) during their practicum. Collaboratively conducted with scholars from CSULA and CSU Pomona, it provides valuable insights to bolster ECSToCs’ cultural competence in urban, multicultural classroom settings.
College of Health, Human Services & Nursing
Associate Professor and Chair of Marital and Family Therapy Karen Quek co-authored “Social Location, Power, and Disadvantage: Experiences of MFT Faculty,” published by the Journal of Feminist Family Therapy. The study explores the intersection of the professional identities and lived experiences of Marital and Family Therapy faculty of color using an approach of discourse analysis.
The authors’ hope is that the discussion informs and provides examples for others as they practice within mental health and academia while navigating these roles within their own intersections.
