50th Anniversary of Jerome Bruner’s 'The Process of Education'

Published in 1960, The Process of Education, is considered by many a landmark text as it has influenced the thinking of generations of teachers and scholars. Linking the findings of the times in cognitive research with the thinking behind the curriculum reform efforts taking place in dozens of universities and educational centers across the country, Bruner’s book was a catalyst in one of the most extensive school reform effort that the United States had ever seen.

On April 27th. a distinguished group of scholars came from around the nation to take part in panel discussions that explored the book's profound influence on the field of education. The panels were organized by Jonathan Zimmerman, chair of Steinhard's Department of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Panelists included: Howard Gardner, Elizabeth Knoll (Harvard University); Barbara Beatty (Wellesley College); Peter Dow (First Hand Learning); Ronald Evans (San Diego State University); Patricia Greenfield (University of California, Los Angeles); Hubert Dyasi (City University of New York Press); Ellen Condliffe Lagemann (Bard College); Roy Pea (Stanford University); Eric Wanner (Russell Sage Foundation); J. Lawrence Aber, Marcelo Suarez-Orozcó, Joshua Aronson (NYU Steinhardt).
