Dr. Rachel Ellaway

Don't try this at home: world domination and academic leadership laid bare

There are many routes to educational scholarship and Dr. Ellaway's path has been odd to say the least.  Rachel will reflect on her path to being an educational researcher and academic leader.  In doing so, she will consider issues of identity, creativity, and serendipity in pursuing an academic career as well as the paths that have yet to be pursued.

Please note that the audio for the Rachel Ellaway lecture does not work until 7 min and 20 seconds into the recording.
