Dr. Douglas Baker, Invisible Lessons of Graduate School: Implications for Our Careers and Leadership

Douglas Baker (’01 Ph.D., Department of Education) is a professor in the English Education program at Eastern Michigan University. In graduate school we learn to accept the adage attributed to Aristotle and Einstein, “The more you know, the more you know you don’t know.” Of course, we may not recognize what we don’t know and lessons, invisible at the moment, to address our ignorance often become critical for our careers. In his talk, Baker will explore invisible lessons he experienced at UCSB and how they informed his teaching and leadership. The inaugural Gevirtz School Alumni Lecture.
