UD Associate Professor Leigh McLean will share research in School of Education colloquium series

Join the University of Delaware’s College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) for a colloquium with Leigh McLean, associate research professor in CEHD’s School of Education and Center for Research in Education and Social Policy, on Wednesday, May 15, from 1:50 to 2:50 p.m. in room 005 of Kirkbride Hall.

McLean investigates how teachers’ emotions and well-being impact their effectiveness. She is particularly interested in how teachers’ emotions impact their instructional practices and the role that early-career teachers’ emotions play as they transition into the career. McLean holds expertise in quantitative, mixed-methods and longitudinal study design and implementation, multi-leveled data analysis and classroom observation. Her colloquium is titled “An In-Depth Look at Emotional Transmission in Elementary Classrooms: Findings from a Study of Teachers’ and Students’ Emotions Across Content Areas.”

McLean’s colloquium is part of a year-long series hosted by CEHD’s School of Education. Speakers both internal and external to UD share their research and engage with faculty and students.

The colloquium is free and open to the public. Audience members are also welcome to participate in a discussion with the speaker following the colloquium.
