Dukakis Center Hosts Citizenship Workshop
On April 3, the Michael and Kitty Dukakis Center for Public and Humanitarian Service hosted a unique citizenship workshop for current ACT freshmen and Study abroad students.
Organizational psychologist and education consultant Ian Kehoe conducted the session, which consisted of students discussing what makes for a “good” and a “bad” citizen, and then designing mock training programs to help people become better citizens. Mr. Kehoe will analyze the findings of the session, compare them with findings from a similar session to be held with senior ACT students, and then publish the results.
Ian Kehoe has over a decade of consulting experience in the private and public sectors, having undertaken projects on behalf of the Department for Education in the UK, Cambridge University, University College Cork, the National College for School Leadership, and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, and teaching at the University of Sheffield and the University of Macedonia.
Mr. Kehoe is completing a Ph.D. at the University of Sheffield and is currently a Research Associate at the Dukakis Center. He is based in Kavala.
