Faculty Tour opens up researchers to new collaboraitons
After 2014's New Faculty tour, College of Education assistant professor Hillary Hughes from the Department of Educational Theory and Practice began a new project with new professors in two other UGA colleges that would focus on health communication and the well-being of adolescents.
Several years before, three other new College of Education faculty members—Stephanie Jones, Corey Johnson and Anneliese Singh—formed a writing group to provide each other critical feedback after learning they share a similar interest in feminist research methods. Based in the departments of educational theory and practice, lifelong education, administration and policy, and counseling and human development, respectively, the trio has met every six weeks for the past seven years, all because they met during the annual Faculty Tour.
Organized by UGA's Office of Public Service and Outreach, with support from several high-level offices, the tour is a chance for new faculty at UGA to learn about the state's resources, culture and people. Read more about the tour and the collaborations it's spawned here.
