Welcome back to America’s leading higher education podcast! In this episode of The EdUp Experience, sponsored by Claremont Lincoln University, we welcome Dr. Manuelito Biag, Senior Associate, Networked Improvement Science & Dr. David Imig, Senior Fellow, Strategic Initiatives, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching! Listen in as special guest cohost Dr. Stacey Gonzales and Liz talk with Manuelito & David about a range of topics including how the Foundation is working on creating education systems within K-12 & higher education.Manuelito Biag joined the Carnegie Foundation in 2016. As a senior associate, he provides leadership, instructional, and research support in the area of networked improvement science. Currently, he aids the Foundation’s field-building efforts in higher education by directing the Improvement Leadership Education and Development (iLEAD) network – a community of 12 district-university partnerships committed to localizing leadership preparation through the use of improvement science principles, methods, and tools. Manuelito comes to Carnegie from Stanford University where he served as senior researcher at the John W. Gardner Center for Youth and their Communities at the Graduate School of Education. His work, which has been presented in community forums, professional conferences, and published in academic journals, policy briefs, and edited volumes, examines the organizational structures, policies, and programs that influence students’ learning and overall development—particularly those from vulnerable and historically-marginalized backgrounds.David Imig, PhD, is a senior fellow at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and a Professor of the Practice in the College of Education at the University of Maryland. He teaches courses in teacher education policy and practice, school and teacher leadership. A founder of the Carnegie Project on Education Doctorate (CPED), a national organization of some 85 graduate schools of education, he is co-leading an effort at Maryland to transform doctoral education to focus on “expectations, outcomes and achievements” of four professional cohorts of EdD students in large metropolitan school districts in areas surrounding the campus.Thanks so much for tuning in.
