February 22- Kenneth R. Bain: Issues in Education: Racism Without Prejudice? How can we create a just educational environment based on the principles of equality of opportunity? This talk will touch on issues of standardized testing, achievement gaps, institutional injustices, and whether one can be a racist without being prejudiced. Professor Bain is founding director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at New York University. Prior to moving to NYU in the fall of 2001, he was founding director of the Searle Center for Teaching Excellence and a professor of history at Northwestern University. He went to Northwestern from the history faculty at Vanderbilt University in 1992, where he was also founding director of the Center for Teaching in the College of Arts and Science. In the 1970's and early 80's he was professor of history at the University of Texas in Edinburg, where he also served as director of that school's University Honors College. From 1984 to 1986, he served as director of the National History Teaching Center. His scholarship centers on the history of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East (principal works include The March to Zion: United States Policy and the Founding of Israel, 1980, 2000), but he has long taken an interest in teaching and learning issues. Internationally recognized for his insights into university teaching and learning and for a fifteen-year study of what the best educators do, he has presented invited workshops at more than seventy-five universities in recent years--in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia. His learning research has concentrated on undergraduate (all fields), graduate management, and medical education. He has received awards from the Harry S Truman Library, Lyndon Baines Johnson Library, the Ford Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the International Studies Association, among others. He is currently completing his third book on U.S. relations with the Middle East (The Last Journey Home: Franklin Roosevelt and the Middle East) and a book on the teaching of history with Peter Filene. He recently finished a book on the evaluation and improvement of college and university teaching (What the Best College Teachers Do: A Fifteen-Year Study of the Thinking and Practices of Highly Successful University Educators. Harvard University Press, 2004). He has won four major teaching awards, including a teacher-of-the-year award in 1968, faculty nomination for the Minnie Piper Foundation Award for outstanding college teacher in Texas in 1980 and 1981, and Honors Professor of the Year Awards in 1985 and 1986.
