Inside Moravian
May 10, 2018
On April 24, Moravian College hosted Chinh Nguyen, a lecturer in language teacher education at the College of Foreign Language Studies at the University of Danang, Vietnam, and a 2017-2018 Fulbright scholar at the College of Education, University of Washington, Seattle. Chinh’s main scholarly interests include language studies, identity in language teaching, sociocultural issues in language teaching, and social justice in education. The focus of his Fulbright project aims to explore the policy and practice of social justice teacher education in U.S. higher education and put forward recommendations for implementing social justice teacher education in Vietnam. Chinh gave a presentation to the campus community and talked with students in EDUC 244/534, “Including Students with Disabilities,” taught by Tristan Gleason, assistant professor of education who coordinated Chinh’s visit. Three of Gleason’s students--Jaime Ernst ’19, Eda Turkdonmez ’19, and post-baccalaureate student Shai Keshodkar reported on the presentations and shared their reflections on the day.

The peer-reviewed achievements of Moravian faculty during 2017. This year 1 book, 18 book and anthology chapters, 20 peer-reviewed articles, 1 short story, 2 group exhibitions, 2 solo exhibitions, and 2 highly competitive awards are showcased. The scholarly communities in which Moravian faculty have shared their knowledge across the disciplines illustrates the breadth and depth of the expertise and research done by our colleagues. 

A focus of Moravian’s curriculum is the development of the skills needed to prepare our students to become problem solvers, creative thinkers, and individuals who contribute to the society around them.  Our faculty are deeply committed to applying and modeling these scholarship traits within their disciplines.  Their scholarly engagement translates into professors who are dynamic, engaging and actively seeking to expand and apply their knowledge beyond the Moravian community, which is evidenced in the 2017 publications.
