SMATE's Hanuscin and undergraduate Spencer Green win ASTE Outstanding paper award

Debi Hanuscin is a professor jointly appointed between Elementary Education and SMATE.  Spencer Green is an undergraduate student in the early childhood education program.  Together they co-authored a paper, (Re)Learning to Teach Science with a Hearing Impairment: An Autoethnographic Study and presented it at the 2022 ASTE conference. In recognition of the implications of their research for educational practice, they have been awarded ASTE’s Outstanding Paper Award for the conference. Based on their own experiences with hearing loss, their study examines possibilities for rethinking ‘inclusion’ in science teacher education. Congratulations Debi and Spencer!!
