Education Unlimited - Leslie Butler, PhD (Instructor)

Leslie Butler, PhD — Instructor

In 2014 I completed my doctorate in Education in the department of Language, Literacy, Social and Cultural Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.   The focus of my dissertation study was to identify emerging twenty-first century skills and practices in digital multi-networked after school programs in the San Francisco bay area.  The digital network produced op-ed writing pieces, photography, video, and poetry generated by the participants.

While working on a dual master's degree in Museum Education at the Bank Street College of Education in New York City, I developed, implemented and taught collaborative programs for New York City Public Schools, Sarah Lawrence College, The Guggenheim, The Noguchi Sculpture Garden, and the Hudson River Science and Art Museum.  The experience of training as a museum educator and k-12 teacher, supported the construction of a foundation for intersecting exhibit design, k-12 professional teacher development and ongoing research and evaluation for improving and developing museum, school and community programs.
