John Dewey Tour and the Dewey Kitchen Institute
Monday July 29th, 2:00 p.m - 9:30 p.m.
The first stop on the John Dewey tour will be to visit the Silver Special Collections Library at the University of Vermont (UVM), located in the historic Billings Library building. Our guide will be Chris Burns, Curator of Manuscripts and University Archivist. The Silver Special Collections Library is home to several collections of interest to Dewey scholars. The tour will include a look at highlights from three of these collections. The first is the John Dewey Papers, which is primarily comprised of materials related to Dewey’s time in Burlington and UVM. The second collection, The Prospect School and Center for Education and Research Archives, contains the archives of the Prospect School (1965-1991) and the Prospect Center for Education and Research (1979-2010). The third collection is the Theodore Brameld Papers. Brameld was a leading twentieth century educational philosopher greatly influenced by Dewey. During this time, participants may also visit the Dewey gravesite, the Ira Allen Chapel, and/or the John Dewey Memorial Lounge (Old Mill building).
Chris Burns is Curator of Manuscripts and University Archivist at the University of Vermont's Silver Special Collections Library. He holds an MLIS from Simmons College, and a BA in Philosophy and MA in History from the University of Vermont.
The second stop on the John Dewey tour will be to visit the Alumni House where Cynthia Belliveau and Lisa Heldke will present “Kitchenroom Inquiry: A Dewey-Inspired Model for Cooking in the Classroom.” This interactive workshop will introduce the John Dewey Kitchen Institute, a three-day immersive experience of cooking as inquiry. Participants will walk through some of the kinds of inquiry that can be done using food and cooking, even with limited supplies, following which we will sketch out the foundational tenets on which our model of “cooking to learn” are built.
Cynthia Belliveau is the dean of University of Vermont Continuing and Distance Education and teaches in UVM’s Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences. In 2005, Dr. Belliveau founded the Sustainable Business: Practices in Support of People, Profit, and Principles program, designed to integrate the work of business and environmental faculty at the University. She currently serves on the Governor’s Agricultural Development Board and has held board/committee positions for the Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, the Lake Champlain Workforce Development Investment Board, and the Intervale Strategic Planning Committee. Dr. Belliveau is the director of Vtrim™, an evidence-based behavior weight-loss management program for the public developed at UVM in 16 years of clinical trials. As dean of Continuing Education, she directs college and professional credit programming for college students and adults. Dr. Belliveau has consulted for Winrock International, US AID, and the Sri Lankan Government. She continues to teach undergraduates about food and cooking in the university Food Lab.

Travis J. Bristol is an assistant professor of education at the University of California, Berkeley. He is a former student and teacher in New York City public schools and teacher educator with the Boston Teacher Residency program. Dr. Bristol's research is situated at the intersection of policy and practice and is centered on three interrelated strands: (1) district and school-based practices that support educators of color; (2) national, state, and local education policies that enable and constrain the workplace experiences and retention for educators of color; (3) the intersection of race and gender in schools. His research has appeared in such peer-reviewed journals as Urban Education, the American Educational Research Journal, and the Journal of Teacher Education. The National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation, Ford Foundation, and the American Educational Research Association awarded Dr. Bristol dissertation fellowships. In 2016, he received the inaugural teacher diversity research award from the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. Dr. Bristol is on the Board of Directors of Teach Plus and the National Center for Teacher Residencies.
Sarah M. Stitzlein is Professor of Education and Affiliate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Cincinnati. She is also President of the John Dewey Society and Co-Editor of the journal, Democracy & Education. As a philosopher of education, she explores and clarify key concepts within and purposes of education from the perspective of social and political philosophy. Additionally, she works to uncover problems in education and envision better alternatives. She is especially interested in issues of political agency, educating for democracy, and equity in schools.
Her most recently published book, American Public Education and the Responsibility of Its Citizens: Supporting Democracy in an Age of Accountability (Oxford University Press, 2017), responds to the increasing hostile climate toward public education, especially in the era of school choice and neoliberalism. It argues that citizens should support public schools as a central institution of democracy. Her previous book, Teaching Dissent: Citizenship Education and Political Activism, investigates the role of political dissent in citizenship education and in the advocacy work of teachers. It describes how both teachers and students might become more active in protests and other measures to fight injustice and secure the common good. Her books have won the Critics’ Choice Award.
She has also received the University of New Hampshire Outstanding Professor award and the University of Cincinnati Distinguished Teaching awards. Finally, she has received the American Association of University Women American Fellowship and the National Endowment for the Humanities Teaching Development Fellowship.
Dr. Christie McIntyre received her PhD in Teacher Leadership from Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA in 2007. Her research interests include teacher development, assessment for student learning (Pre-K to College), and applications of constructivism. She has been invited to share her work related to assessments of teacher candidates at local, state, and national conferences. She served on college level and university level assessment committees, where she helped guide the development of the initial standards-based Teacher Education Program Assessment System in 2004. As the program coordinator for undergraduate and graduate programming in Curriculum and Instruction, Christie continued to guide faculty in the development of assessment systems with and without the assistance of national standards. She was an Assessment Fellow in the Associate Provost of Academic Programs office in 2014, and she facilitated the Conversations about Student Learning and Engagement (CASTLE) professional learning community on campus for two years. Prior to being hired as an assistant professor in 2008, Christie received the SIU Outstanding Term Faculty Teaching Award. Dr. McIntyre chaired the Provost’s Task Force titled, TEACH in 2015, where faculty from several disciplines came together to review how we could better support teaching at SIU. As the advisor of educ8kdz, she led three service learning trips to New Orleans, where teacher candidates worked in schools and child care centers impacted by hurricanes in that area. She also assisted the educ8kdz members in local projects that supported young children. Dr. McIntyre served as the President of the Illinois Association of Teacher Educators and is President of the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE).
