SUNY Potsdam Disciplined Inquiry in Education Seminar Series Continues in 2023

January 23, 2023

2023 Disciplined Inquiry in Education Seminar Series Kicks Off Again on Feb. 8 at SUNY Potsdam, with Wide-Ranging Array of Talks Planned 

SUNY Potsdam will continue its Disciplined Inquiry in Education Seminar Series with a range of topics across the disciplines in 2023, and is open to the public once again this semester. 

Sponsored by SUNY Potsdam's School of Education and Professional Studies, the annual series is celebrating 16 years and more than 150 presentations to date. All seminar meetings will be face-to-face with an online attendance option.  

Victoria Hayes, a clinical faculty member in the Department of Elementary Education, will open the series this semester with an overview of her quest to “intentionally invite” students from marginalized backgrounds to engage in the college classroom. Her talk is titled “‘You don’t spell it… you feel it.’ -Winnie-the-Pooh,” after Pooh’s response to a query about how to spell the word “love,” in A.A. Milne’s famous books.  

All seminar meetings will be offered on Wednesdays, in the Rebecca V. Sheard Literacy Center balcony, from noon to 1 p.m. (unless otherwise noted). There will also be a virtual viewing option available via Zoom.  

The sessions for the series are as follows: 

These events are free, and the public is welcome to attend. Community members who wish to join either virtually or in person should email Billijean Elliott for more information, at
