My professional blog of 2 decades was infected by malware in late 2023. Ah well. You live, you learn. I am starting over, so this is a work in progress.

About Sean Lancaster

I am an Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs and report to the Provost. My primary duties are focused on Strategic Planning, Accreditation, Assessment, and I also handle the Curriculum duties (though, this is temporary, I hope, as we seek another AVP for this role). 

I was also a co-founder of the Michigan Teacher Education Network (MITEN) where I worked daily on our mission – to collaboratively reimagine and create a more just educational experience for children – especially those who go unseen in our racialized society.

My Values

The scholarship I presented at the 2022 American Educational Research Association (AERA) provides a summary of the professional work I have most valued. I worked with colleagues from Michigan State University, the University of Michigan, and Central Michigan University to present a Symposium at AERA titled, “Tensions and Opportunities in Integrating Practice-Based Teacher Education and Socially Just Teacher Education.”

I took the lead on two papers in the session:

  • Collective Work on Problems of Practice in Antiracist Practice-Based Teacher Education
  • The Capacity for Equity and Antiracism Work Across Teacher Education

I’ll figure out what to put in this section below
