Michael Thier

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.
