Alison Cook-Sather
Alison Cook-Sather, Professor of Education and Coordinator of Bryn Mawr’s Teaching and Learning Initiative, holds a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. She works with a wide range of learners and teachers, including Bryn Mawr and Haverford students and alumni/ae preparing to teach at the secondary level, high-school teachers and students who participate in that preparation, and college faculty interested in pedagogical issues. Her dissertation and subsequent research have focused on how to connect and translate between commonly posed dichotomies in education: teacher and student, theory and practice, different educational contexts. Toward the same end of fostering more informed conversations among teachers and learners, she designs courses and workshops that facilitate communication and understanding among high-school teachers, aspiring scholars, and experienced college educators.
