Nationwide, over 1,000 institutions are &ldquo;test optional,&rdquo; including ten colleges and universities in Wisconsin. Most recently, Marquette University just this year decided to drop the SAT or ACT as a requirement for admission, beginning with the Fall 2020 entering class.<br /> <br /> Colleges that become test optional often ​cite ​standardized tests ​as discriminatory against underprivileged students and express a desire to attract more diverse student bodies. Critics have argued the policy boosts applications and SAT/ACT averages for admitted students, potentially giving​ test-optional colleges an advantage in ​college rankings. <br /> <br /> Join the <a target="_blank" href="http://wiscape.wisc.edu">Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE)</a> for a panel discussion featuring admissions and enrollment leaders from Wisconsin colleges and universities that have become test optional in recent years, to talk about why they decided to shift their policy and how it was worked in practice.<br /> <br /> How do they evaluate applications for students who do or do not submit test scores? ​Has the policy changed their applicant pool or the make-up of their admitted and enrolled students?

Some Misperceptions and Causes for ConcernJoin WISCAPE for a conversation with Eric Grodsky, professor of Sociology and Educational Policy Studies, addressing common misperceptions about student debt. Mon, 30 Dec 2019 19:22:02 Z<img src="http://dance.wisc.edu/images/WebDispenser/news-and-events/grodsky_eric-150x150.png?sfvrsn=0" displaymode="Original" alt="Photo of Eric Grodsky" title="grodsky_eric-150x150" style="float: right; margin-bottom: 15px; margin-left: 15px;" />Underpinning the free college movement in part is a shared belief that undergraduate educational debt has skyrocketed in recent years to levels that impose a substantial burden on individual and even societal prospects for prosperity. How did student debt change between the 1990s and the first decade of the 21<sup>st</sup> century? Who bears the burden of student debt, and how, if at all, has this changed over time? <br /> <br /> Join the <a href="http://wiscape.wisc.edu" title="Visit WISCAPE website" target="_blank">Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE)</a> for a conversation with <a href="https://sociology.wisc.edu/staff/grodsky-eric/" title="Visit bio page for Eric Grodsky" target="_blank">Eric Grodsky</a> addressing these questions. <br /> <br /> Drawing from nationally representative data, ​Grodsky contends that the nature and scope of the debt crisis is often misunderstood. Undergraduate debt has risen over time, but much of that change was born by the fifth of those borrowing the most money for their education; changes for typical borrowers were much more modest. Furthermore, as much as half of the 1.5 trillion dollars in debt frequently cited in the news is held by those with graduate or professional degree, not those who ended their formal education with a baccalaureate degree. <br /> <br /> If there is a crisis in student debt, it may be a crisis among those with who fail to earn any degree at all and those with advanced degrees, particularly among African American borrowers. <br /> <br /> Grodksy is a professor of Sociology and Educational Policy Studies at UW-Madison.<br /> <br /> This event is cosponsored by ​the <a target="_blank" title="Visit SSTAR website" href="https://sstar.wisc.edu/about">Student Success Through Applied Research (SSTAR) Lab</a>.

The book follows 1,670 two-year college students over four years as they begin STEM programs in the Midwest and documents their educational and life experiences as they moved toward, or away, from the prospect of transfer to a four-year institution. Their stories reveal that they were on their own, left to navigate the pathways to transfer without meaningful institutional support.</blockquote>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> Wang is ​a professor in the <a href="https://elpa.education.wisc.edu/" title="Visit ELPA website" target="_blank">Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis</a> at UW-Madison.<br /> <br /> ​LUNCH PROVIDED.

He will also discuss his on-going work and engagement on inclusive education and inclusive employment in the Himalayan country of Bhutan.Fri, 15 Nov 2019 19:19:17 Z<p>Globally, the movement towards inclusive education has focused significant attention and energy on accessibility and participation for children with disabilities. In the United States, much of the focus of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act is on accessing the mainstream curriculum. However, this focus on access fails to account for the place of educational institutions within larger, more complex, social systems. Additionally, in policy there is little focus on the socio-cultural experience of inclusion from the end-users themselves: children with disabilities and other marginalized populations. In this presentation, Dr. Schuelka will present a synthesis of his latest edited book, The SAGE Handbook on Inclusion and Diversity in Education, as well as a summary from an upcoming article in the International Journal of Inclusive Education, to argue for better understanding and design of inclusive education as a system. He will also discuss his on-going work and engagement on inclusive education and inclusive employment in the Himalayan country of Bhutan.</p> A Colloquium by Matthew Schuelka, University of Birmingham.<br /> Hosted by the Department of Rehabilitation Psychology and Special Education.urn:uuid:d1c5c237-c0a5-69e0-ad6d-ff0000cdac6dhttp://dance.wisc.edu/dance/news/events/2019/11/12/default-calendar/placemaking-pedagogies-co-constructing-reconfiguring-an-early-childhood-afterschool-community-space Placemaking Pedagogies: Co-Constructing & Reconfiguring an Early Childhood Afterschool Community SpaceDr. Jaye Johnson Thiel will reflect on what she learned from opening & facilitating a community center for & with children in a low­-income, multilingual neighborhood & how this research has informed her work as a pre-service teacher education.

Thu, 07 Nov 2019 18:53:06 ZYoung children see &amp; experience the effects of race, racism, &amp; white supremacy on a daily basis. There is an urgent need for anti-bias &amp; anti-racist pedagogy in early childhood classrooms, yet many current recommendations ignore the experiences of young children of color in the classroom. This talk includes a critical, video-cued ethnographic study of children's sense-making around race in two urban classrooms serving primarily students of color. Children in one first grade &amp; one kindergarten class demonstrated nuanced, socio­historically influenced strategies which they used to learn about race, racism, &amp; difference across the school day. Through embodied strategies, children tried out racialized theories &amp; discourses &amp; drew from a shared repertoire of racial narratives. The talk concludes with implications about teacher education &amp; pedagogy about race &amp; issues related to racism.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Anna Falkner is a doccoral candidate in the Deparcment of Curriculum &amp; Instruction at the University of Texas at Austin.

The discussion asks: “What if the orthodoxies of science as having practical knowledge have little historical evidence to sustain its promise?” “What if the ‘scientific evidence’ of the practical research is not merely about facts, evidence or ‘science,’ but about the ordering of conduct to change social life and people that produces differences and divisions?”Thu, 26 Sep 2019 15:27:48 Z<p>Thomas Popkewitz, a professor with the School of Education&rsquo;s Department of Curriculum and Instruction, will be delivering a brown bag discussion from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, in room 8411 of the Social Sciences building.</p> <p>The presentation it titled, &ldquo;The Impracticality of Practical Research: A History of Contemporary Sciences of Change that Conserve.&rdquo;</p> <p><img src="http://dance.wisc.edu/images/WebDispenser/news-and-events/thomas-popkewitz4ab2bf37c0a569e0ad6dff0000cdac6d.png?sfvrsn=0" displaymode="Original" alt="thomas-popkewitz" title="thomas-popkewitz" class="FloatImageRight" />There is an alluring, daunting, and haunting desire in contemporary Western European and American social sciences. That desire is for research to find the practical knowledge that enables change to bring about a good life in a just and equitable society. This desire haunts the 19th century emergence of the social sciences and becomes more pronounced in the post-war mobilizations of research in the expansion of the welfare states. This vision of practical knowledge is captured today in the international assessments of national school systems and professional education that identifies the pathways for governments to modernize school systems and provide for the well-being of its people. This faith embodies particular links between American policy and research in which reforms are verified by &ldquo;scientific, empirical evidences&rdquo; about &ldquo;what works.&rdquo;</p> <p>Popkewitz&rsquo;s brown bag focuses historically on present principles that order the &ldquo;practical&rdquo; sciences as more profound, complex and paradoxical than initially suggested in the formulation of the research. The discussion asks: &ldquo;What if the orthodoxies of science as having practical knowledge have little historical evidence to sustain its promise?&rdquo; &ldquo;What if the &lsquo;scientific evidence&rsquo; of the practical research is not merely about facts, evidence or &lsquo;science,&rsquo; but about the ordering of conduct to change social life and people that produces differences and divisions?&rdquo; </p> <p>And if there is time, Popkewitz will talk about an alternative notion of science and social change.</p>urn:uuid:d59fc237-c0a5-69e0-ad6d-ff0000cdac6dhttp://dance.wisc.edu/dance/news/events/2020/04/10/default-calendar/supporting-higher-education-and-career-success-for-refugees-in-wisconsin Supporting Higher Education and Career Success for Refugees in WisconsinThis day-long event will bring together diverse stakeholders to learn about the barriers and supports that impact the college and career success of refugees in Wisconsin.

As the state&rsquo;s regional demographics continue to shift, many higher education institutions have committed to the goal of attracting, supporting, retaining, and graduating increasingly diverse student bodies from traditionally marginalized backgrounds.<br /> <br /> Given the rapid growth in the Hispanic community in particular, a number of these institutions have begun actively pursuing the status of &ldquo;Hispanic-Serving Institution&rdquo; (HSI), which requires that at least 25 percent of the student body be Hispanic. But more important than enrollment data or a federal designation, it is imperative for all of Wisconsin&rsquo;s colleges and universities to connect underrepresented students to opportunities and support them along their educational journeys.<br /> <br /> This one-day summit, hosted by the<a href="http://wiscape.wisc.edu/" target="_blank"> Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE)</a> and the six member institutions of the HSI Network of Wisconsin, will provide a forum for students, community members, and higher education professionals to connect and collaboratively explore how we can create the conditions necessary for all underrepresented students to thrive on our campuses.<br /> <br /> Dr. Gina A.

The Chinese harbor city thus became a safe haven for a Jewish diaspora in East Asia. The refugees&rsquo; hope to use Shanghai as a temporary waiting room for their transfer to North America or elsewhere was soon wrecked by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the breakout of the Pacific War. As a result, they ended up spending a decade in China. <br /> <br /> During his talk, Dr. Li will illustrate how the European Jewish refugees sustained their educational aspirations and efforts by creating various educational institutions in the war-torn Chinese city, including establishing a continuing education center grounded in the German concept of &ldquo;Volkshochschule&rdquo; (people&rsquo;s university). Furthermore, ​Li will discuss how Jewish refugees&rsquo; educational tradition intersected with China&rsquo;s political and societal frameworks. Drawing upon Shanghai&rsquo;s Jewish adult education as a unique case, ​the talk will address how transnational refugee education could overcome deficit models and cultural homogenization.<br /> <br /> This event is ​cosponsored by the <a target="_blank" title="Visit CEAS website" href="https://eastasia.wisc.edu/">Center for East Asian Studies</a>, the <a href="https://daadcenter.wisc.edu/" title="Visit CGES website" target="_blank">Center for German and European Studies (CGES)</a>, the <a href="https://gns.wisc.edu/" title="Visit GNS website" target="_blank">Department of German, Nordic, and Slavic Cultures</a>, and the <a href="https://jewishstudies.wisc.edu/" title="Visit Mosse/Weinstein Center website" target="_blank">Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies</a>. <br /> <br /> A light lunch will be provided by ​CGES! ​<br /> <br /> <strong><strong><strong><a target="_blank" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKWdANPUb1o" title="Visit YouTube to view video"><strong><strong>Watch this ​​discussion</strong></strong></a></strong></strong></strong><strong> on the WISCAPE YouTube channel.</strong></p>
