About this Event

Provocations, Playful Inquiry & Emergent Curriculum

Featuring Keynote Speaker Frances Rust

Frances O’Connell Rust is Professor Emerita at New York University - Steinhardt, Scholar in Residence at the NYU Metro Center, and adjunct Professor at University of Pennsylvania - GSE. Using her Montessori training and her readings on the British Infant Schools, Rust started two pre-school kindergartens. She went on from there to a doctorate at Teachers College, Columbia and, since 1985, she has directed teacher education programs at Teachers College-Columbia, Manhattanville College, Hofstra University, NYU, and the University of Pennsylvania. She is an executive editor of Teachers and Teaching-theory and practice, and Voices of Practitioners-the online teacher research journal of NAEYC. She is a member of the International Forum on Teacher Educator Development (InFo-TED). Most recently, her work has focused on Engström’s theory of “expansive learning” as a way of understanding dynamic new educational models such as “true play” in Anji in China.
