Alice Lesnick
Alice Lesnick is Term Professor of Education, Director of the Bryn Mawr/Haverford Education Program, and Coordinator of Africana Studies. A Faculty Associate in the Institute for Writing and Thinking since 1993, Alice studies literacies of learning with particular interest in collaborative learning; networked learning; and the bridging of formal and informal contexts of education. Alice has created and teaches a broad range of courses including her Program's gateway and capstone seminars; literacies and education; qualitative research; education, technology, and society; first-year writing and thinking; and empowering learners: health literacies in context. Awarded the Rosalyn R. Schwartz Teaching Award in 2004 and a former preschool, elementary, middle, and high school teacher, Alice now directs the BiCo Dalun Community Fellowships project linking Bryn Mawr and Haverford College undergraduates with several contexts—including a university, a preschool, a community radio station, and an ICT Centre in Northern Ghana. Other passions threading through these include painting, poetry, and Tai Chi.
