TeachAids Board Member Shelley Goldman Begins First Academic Year As Associate Dean of Students & Faculty Affairs
Shelley Goldman is a professor at the Stanford Graduate School of Education who has taught and served the Stanford community since 2001. This past spring, Goldman took on a new role as the Associate Dean of Students & Faculty Affairs, and she is now kicking off her first full year in this new role.
Goldman’s interests involve investigating the learning process in real-world contexts such as student to student conversations, activities both in and out of the classroom, and exposure to different technologies. Investigating active engagement in the learning process led Goldman to focus on creating enriched STEM learning as well as incorporating design thinking into different curricula. Her current work includes incorporating STEM into family activities and working with teachers to better design engagements for their students who are designated English learners.
As a long-standing supporter of TeachAids, Professor Goldman has been involved in many facets of the development of CrashCourse. In 2018, she co-taught an educational research course at Stanford called “Collaborative Design and Research of Technology-integrated Curriculum” with TeachAids CEO, Dr. Piya Sorcar. The course introduced students to the TeachAids iterative design process, and allowed them the chance to design and field test the first iterations of TeachAids’ concussion education curriculum. Students worked with youth to develop the storyboard for CrashCourse Football.
We are so appreciative of Associate Dean Goldman’s endless support, and wish her all the best throughout this upcoming school year.
