UNC Dean Invited to Present on Teacher Education in Seoul

Eugene Sheehan

The dean of the University of Northern Colorado's College of Education and Behavioral Sciences will deliver a keynote address at an international conference May 29 in Seoul, South Korea.

Eugene Sheehan will address quality in teacher preparation at the Seoul National University of Education (SNUE) conference titled "Teacher Education in the Global Era: Issues and Solutions."

Sheehan will join colleagues and fellow presenters from Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, and Boston.

Through the efforts of UNC professors, Hannah Kang and Youngjin Song, UNC and SNUE are in the process of developing a student exchange between the two universities, with students from the Korean school scheduled to attend UNC this summer. Spearheaded by Sheehan, the college also has longstanding exchange programs with Thailand's Burapha University and Kasetsart University.

Sheehan has served as the college's dean since 2000 and at UNC since 1986.
