Michael Thier uses multiple and mixed methods to (a) aid implementation
and measurement of global citizenship education (GCE); (b) compare GCE
possibilities and constraints internationally/cross-culturally; and (c)
discover opportunities and conditions that enable students, especially
in rural/remote schools, to participate in GCE. He has won awards from
the American Educational Research Association (including for most
outstanding mixed methods dissertation), English Journal, and the
University of Oregon, where he recently completed a concurrent Ph.D.
(educational leadership), specialization (quantitative methods), and
Master’s degree (public administration). Most importantly, he is the
proud father of two inquisitive and strong daughters.
