Dr. Peter Schneller to Discuss Creativity on March 16 at LINC Luncheon
May 24, 2010
Dr. Peter Schneller, associate professor of education and co-chair of the Department of Education at Mount Union will present “Creativity: Friend or Foe?” at the LINC Luncheon on Tuesday, March 16 at noon in the East Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.
Schneller, a member of the Mount Union faculty since 1998, earned a bachelor of arts degree in English/speech from Wittenberg University, a bachelor of science degree in elementary education from Kent State University, a master of science degree in education from the University of Akron and a doctoral degree in teacher education from the University of Idaho.
At Mount Union, Schneller was named the 2009 Great Teacher, and created the comparative education course to teach teacher candidates how to deal with diversity issues. In addition, he provides valuable field experience for students, including with the Juvenile Attention Center in Canton, Alliance Navigators After-School Program and Tomorrow Center in Mt. Gilead. He has traveled to Russia and Christ College in India to assist with study abroad collaboration, and he spent four months teaching at the Tibetan Childrens’ Villages School Teacher Training Center in Dharamsala, India during his sabbatical.
LINC (lunch, information, networking and conversation) was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise that exists in Alliance, in light of the College’s exceptional academic reputation. The LINC luncheon is a college-community luncheon series presented by Mount Union professors and community members conversing about current topics.
Sessions will be chaired by Doug Schwarz, vice president of Alliance Ventures and executive director of the Greater Alliance Foundation, with comments and updates from Dr. Richard F. Giese, president of the College and Harry Paidas, chair of the Department of Communication and assistant to the president for community affairs and special projects.
The sessions are open to the public and will run from noon until 1 p.m.
