The Heinemann Fellows: Video Spotlight on Lisa Birno

birno-video

Earlier this year, Heinemann hosted a symposium for its 2014–2016 class of Fellows. Each Fellow gave a presentation on his or her action research project, and afterward sat down to answer some questions. Today, Lisa Birno gives two elegant and measured responses in two videos. The questions: "What would you want to share about your process of discovery?" and "What is the one word that describes you as an educator?" Videos below after the break.
