Nancy Weber, Ph.D. candidate within the Department of Teaching, Learning, and Culture at Texas A&M, was chosen to present at the 2015 College of Education and Human Development (CHED) Future Leaders Seminar Series.
Weber, Ph.D. candidate earning a degree in Curriculum and Instruction, also has an emphasis area in teacher education. Her research primarily focuses on pre-service and first-year teachers’ self-efficacy, pedagogy and integration of technology into teaching and learning practices. Weber has also conducted classroom observation research with the Education Research Center, an organization that investigates the nature of school resources and educational practice in order to improve P-16 educational practices and decision-making.
The CEHD Future Leaders Seminar Series is a lecture series that includes a presentation from a doctoral student in each of the four departments within the College of Education. The four doctoral students will speak on a designated day throughout the course of the spring semester to present a portion of their dissertation research.
“The candidates are nominated and selected by faculty members in each department,” said Dr. George Cunningham, professor and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Research within the Department of Health and Kinesiology. “These are among the best and brightest students we have in the college.”
After successfully defending her dissertation research on January 27th, 2015, Weber will be presenting a portion of her research, which uses multiple classroom observation instruments to compare the behaviors, interactions and classroom environments of first-year teachers with those of more experienced teachers, on February 13th.
