Clinical Assistant Professor

Teaching and Learning

Dr. Katie Scott Newhouse is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning in the NYU Teacher Residency and on campus programs. She holds her Doctorate of Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. She received her Master’s in Middle Childhood and Special Education from Pace University and her Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from NYU’s College of Arts and Sciences.

Katie began her career working as a special education classroom teacher for middle and high school students. Her fields of study include disability studies in education, DisCrit, and critical spatial theory. She was recently named co-program chair for the Disability Studies in Education special interest group of the American Education Research Association (2022-2024). Katie is interested in exploring the possibilities of multimodal research methods and qualitative approaches to both pedagogy and scholarship. She is a co-convener of the Multimodal Scholarship Working Group (MSWG) located at Teachers College in the Media and Social Change lab (MASCLab). This group is a supportive learning community for early career scholars to share in-process work related to multimodal research and teaching. Her recent publications, “Cultivating Educational Spaces that Support Black Girl’s Spatial Inquires” and “Unraveling a Researcher’s Practices of Care with One Disabled Youth” emphasize a more ethical, care-based approach to research with youth which also informs teaching and learning.

She was awarded the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Outstanding Dissertation award in 2021 from the Disability Studies in Education special interest group.
