College of Education Exemplifies Faculty Excellence

Two College of Education faculty have received Faculty Excellence Awards for their outstanding work for the University of Idaho, their students, and the community.

Kathy Canfield-Davis, assistant professor in the Department of Counseling, School Psychology and Educational Leadership, has received the University of Idaho Outreach Award. This award is a significant acknowledgement of Kathy’s work in the Coeur d’Alene area establishing leadership cohorts, promoting the University, and public service.

Canfield-Davis’s professional career spans K-12 and higher education. Her community activism is extensive and includes membership on human rights commissions, library boards, community development councils and higher education human rights advisory committees. Within the private sector, she is a national consultant on school facilities. Her research areas include multiculturalism, women in leadership, K-12 policy and governance and educational leadership. She teaches educational leadership courses for the University of Idaho.

Beth Reynolds, associate professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, has received the University of Idaho Advising Excellence Award. Her commitment to undergraduate students is truly unprecedented, and her willingness to spend time and provide assistance has made a difference to numerous students.

Beth’s degrees in Educational Psychology cover a broad spectrum of topics related to the education of the individual. She embraces the philosophies of Jean Piaget, particularly as his theories relate to spatial performance research and cognitive style. She is interested in many variables that impact the learning and development of the individual, such as gender, spatial performance, and cognitive style. Her research interests include gifted and talented education, exemplary teaching, and aggression in the schools. Beth teaches a number of courses in her department, including ED301,“Principles of Learning and Development,” and ED526, “Advanced Educational Psychology.”

Both recipients will receive their awards at the Excellence Awards Banquet on April 20, 2010 at the University Inn Best Western in Moscow, Idaho, beginning at 6 p.m.
