Webb receives John Laska Distinguished Dissertation Award
College of Education & Human Development doctoral student Rhonda Webb is one of the 2016 recipients of the John Laska Distinguished Dissertation Award in Curriculum.
The award, given annually by the American Association for Teaching and Curriculum (AATC), recognizes two doctoral dissertations on teaching and curriculum “that best represent the mission of the organization,” according to the association’s website.
As one of this year’s award winners, Webb will receive a one-year membership to AATC and the conference fees waived for the association’s annual conference, which will be held in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Oct. 13-15. Webb will present her dissertation research at a special session highlighting the two 2016 dissertation award winners.
AATC was founded in 1993 to recognize teaching and curriculum as a basic field of study and to create a national society for the scholarly field of curriculum and teaching. For more information, visit http://aatchome.org.
