Education Department Chair Dr. Cynthia McDermott Co-Edits Book

Cynthia McDermott, EdD, Professor and Chair of the Education Department, has co-edited a new book on modern approaches in social and educational research. Contributing authors include esteemed higher education leaders from across the globe who engaged in profound and robust exercises sharing experience in each of their countries and broadening the readers understanding of international issues. Scholars from New Zealand, the Czech Republic, Serbia, China, Bulgaria, Poland, The Republic of Macedonia, Croatia, Ukraine, Russia, Slovenia and Slovakia contributed to the book.

“It is always an honor to work with colleagues across the world so as Americans we can see beyond our shores,” said McDermott. “Such was the experience in the collaboration with my friend Professor Boris Kozuh as we created the text, Modern Approaches in Social and Educational Research.”

Dr. McDermott and Dr. Fred Chapel, Core Faculty in the Education Department, contributed a chapter to the book on the status of play in education as manifest throughout the world. The chapter is entitled “How Play Deficit Disorder is Created and What Can Be Done to Change This Crisis“.

This effort reinforces the commitment of the AULA Education Department to global understanding and study.
