Drs. Robert S. and Judith A. Gardner Educational Forum Series Brings Education Speakers to Wilkes University
The Drs. Robert S. and Judith A. Gardner Educational Forum Series at Wilkes University highlights current issues in education. Series co-founders Robert S. and Judith A. Gardner are faculty members in the Wilkes University Department of Education. According to Robert S. Gardner, he and his wife started the series as an outgrowth of their classroom teaching. “It’s part of our philosophy of teaching that learning should not be confined to the classroom,” he explains. “We believe that these experiences offer opportunities to be other places and hear other voices. These are powerful experiences that help people understand what education can be.”
The series features speakers from the educational and business community. All lectures are free and open to the public.
