Roundtable explores similarities in teacher prep, military training
The Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will sponsor a roundtable discussion exploring the similarities between teacher preparation and military training at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 24 in the Miley Hall executive dining room.
Teacher preparation and military training share the same goal: To develop leaders to execute the mission. Research and professional experience has led to the identification of six shared lessons – trust your training, be a battle buddy, be a leader, nurture yourself, steel your battle mind, and grab your lifeline.
During this roundtable, participants will discuss how these lessons play a key role in preparing and supporting an “all-volunteer” teaching and military force. The discussion will be led by Dr. Kathleen Vespia, assistant professor in the Department of Education, and Dr. Tom Gibbons, associate professor of professional military and graduate education effectiveness at the Naval War College.
Roundtable discussions are open to Salve Regina students, faculty and staff, and lunch is provided. As space is limited, those interested in attending should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
