Description/Abstract: Guest Talk: Student Research Panel Presentation & Discussion, with CAE, Wednesday, 10/25, 5-7pm


The Teachers College George Clement Bond Center for African Education (CAE), under the leadership of Interim Director Professor S. Garnett Russell, welcomes TC students and faculty who are interested in research and education-related issues in Africa and the Diaspora. The Center promotes interdisciplinary study and discussion across Teachers College and Columbia University through research projects, conferences, and lecture series. Through these various opportunities, the Center provides a forum for students to discuss their research and interests with African scholars, Africanist faculty, and colleagues.

On October 25th 2017, CAE will host a student research presentation with a panel of five Masters Students who conducted research over the summer of 2017. This panel discussion will offer an opportunity for students and faculty to interact across departments and share ideas on current ideas and projects in the field of African studies. We look forward to welcoming participants from within the TC and CU community who can bring first hand experiences and opportunities for further research or employment. We also welcome participants with little experience to no experience in Africa, but are interested in the field of African studies.

Kevin’s Nascimento’s research study aimed at investigating implementation factors affecting the learning outcomes of two Save the Children (SCI) Zambia programs currently being implemented in Zambia - basic education (BE) and early childhood care development and education.


Dramane Ouedraogo’s research aims at analyzing the provision of civic education to Students' Parents Association (SPA) in the rural area of Burkina Faso.


Sarah Lewinger’s research focuses on Uganda, where abstinence-only education programs (both formal and informal) are widespread. Through in-depth interviews with Ugandan women about their experiences with sexual education - including but not limited to abstinence-only education – she examines how various forms of sexual education affect women's abilities to make informed and empowered decisions regarding their sexual health in the East African context and beyond.


Jihae (Jay) Cha conducted her research in Kakuma Refugee Camp, which is located in the northwestern part of Kenya. Jay’s research explores the changes in female refugee students’ academic motivation and psychosocial well-being as a result of their participation in remedial classes, and the role teachers played in students’ performance and well-being.


Iman Sebunya's research explores the Daara system of Koranic education and its role in promoting social cohesion in rural and urban Senegal



This event is co-sponsored by the George Clement Bond Center for African Education and Gottesman Libraries. It is open to all, including participants with little to no experience in Africa, but who are interested in the field of African studies, and those who can bring first hand experiences and opportunities for further research or employment.

Please rsvp no later than Monday, October 23rd with your interest and details.
