Research Leadership Learning Podcast

Welcome to the Research Leadership Learning Podcast from Dowling College's Research Leadership Learning Center.

On this podcast we explore many fields of knowledge related to leadership in social agencies, bringing you conversations with teachers, principals, superintendents and others working in and around the Long Island region, including Dowling faculty and Dowling doctoral candidates. By sharing research and knowledge from the field, we hope to develop a profound human awareness among leaders of social agencies in Nassau and Suffolk Counties and beyond.

Shownotes with related links:

Dr. Rich Bernato sits down to discuss literacy with Dr. George Cavuto, professor of Literacy Education at Dowling. Dr. Cavuto is also the founder and Executive director of The Reading and Learning Center of Long Island, Inc., a private Literacy Center established in 1973. On this episode, the two discuss everything from what an optimal K-12 literacy program would look like, how you could assess it, and what type of training the teachers would need. The conversation also turns to Basal readers, Reading Recovery, the cost of literacy programs, and just how many literacy credits should be required in an undergraduate or graduate program.
