School of Education researchers examining ways to bolster out-of-school science activities

School of Education graduate students and faculty members Leema Berland, Rosemary Russ and Noah Weeth Feinstein on April 7 took part in UW-Madison's Science Expeditions event. But unlike many of their counterparts from across campus, this group not only delivered interesting and interactive learning activities — it also spoke with families about their everyday experiences and the science underlying them in an effort to bolster and improve out-of-school science ventures. This is part of their Grand Challenges Engage project, “Curiosity Practice: A powerful new lever for science engagement across Wisconsin.”

Earlise C. Ward, an alumna of the School of Education and a leader with years of experience in both healthcare and helping the community, will become the next director of UW-Madison's Morgridge Center for Public Service. Ward, an associate professor at the School of Nursing, will begin her new role in January 2019. Ward has been with the School of Nursing since 2007. She received her Ph.D. from the School of Education's Department of Counseling Psychology in 2002. Ward will replace Kathy Cramer, who stepped down as the faculty director and returned to a full-time position as a professor in the Political Science department.
