NCCU Professor To Travel to Australia for International Teaching Exchange Award Program
North Carolina Central University professor Kisha Daniels was recently awarded with the Australian Endeavour Executive Award, a fellowship offering professors throughout the world research and teaching opportunities in Australia. From the release:
Daniels’ award is in recognition of her research on the use of service-learning as a teaching strategy. Research by her and others shows that service-learning is an effective form of pedagogy that provides rigor and relevance and also builds leadership, cultural awareness and advocacy skills in future educators. It also has been shown to have a positive influence on K-12 students and urban communities. Daniels has been using service-learning as an instructional tool since 2006 as the co-principal investigator for a grant from Learn and Serve America.
