Letter from the Dean, Fall-Winter 2010

Dean Margaret Weber

Dialogue and debate facilitate the most effective learning. When questions are asked, ideas are shared, opinions exchanged, and viewpoints challenged. The audience is actively engaged in critical thinking, the most important endeavor of any academic program and, arguably, life thereafter.

That is why the Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) invites you to participate as an active discussant on the updated Colleague Web site: colleague.pepperdine.edu.

The online portal now features commenting capabilities, and we want to hear from you. Does a particular feature move you? Are you inspired by the efforts of a particular student or alumnus? Do any of the articles speak to you and your experience with GSEP?

But this is not the only way to share your voice with the GSEP community. Find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pepperdineuniversitygsep, on LinkedIn at www.linkedin.com/in/
pepperdinegsep
, and on Twitter at twitter.com/gsepnetwork.

Over the years Colleague has touched on diverse subjects and highlighted many people impacting their communities locally and globally. This issue contains stories about alumni applying their learning technologies expertise to the museum field, an alumnus teaching entrepreneurship to women in the Middle East, programs pioneering action research, and best-practice career strategies.

Take to the Web and let us know which of these topics elicit a response from you. We look forward to continuing this conversation with you online.

Margaret J. Weber, PhD
Dean
