Dr. Renée Tipton Clift is Associate Dean of the College of Education and Professor of Teaching, Learning, and Sociocultural Studies at the University of Arizona. She received her Ph.D. in Curriculum and Teacher Education from Stanford University and has been on the faculty of the University of Houston and the University of Illinois.  While at Illinois she established the Illinois New Teacher Collaborative. Her research investigates factors that affect the process of learning to teach, which includes preservice teachers’ learning, educators’ continuing professional development, and educational leadership. Her current projects include Communities as Resources for Early Childhood Teacher Preparation (CREATE), which examines the change process as the college redesigns the early childhood teacher preparation program to focus more on families and communities; Making the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics Accessible to Teachers, which provides professional development for area teachers; and an ongoing study that employs self-study methodology to examine the impact a dean can have on program development.
