Dr. Thomas Misco, Professor
College of Education, Health, and Society, Miami University, USA

Biography: Dr. Thomas Misco, Professor is Naus Family Faculty Scholar, Director of Graduate Studies, and professor of education at Miami University. He earned his B.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his M.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Iowa. Prof. Misco’s research focuses on the discussion of controversial issues in cross-cultural contexts, including studies in China, Guam, Japan, Latvia, Romania, Saipan, and South Korea. His current research is exploring citizenship education in the unincorporated territories of the United States. Misco has received Miami University’s Distinguished Scholar Award, a Fulbright Senior Specialist Fellowship, and the Richard T. Delp Outstanding Faculty Award. His authored books include Cross-Cultural Case Studies of Teaching Controversial Issues (Oisterwijk, The Netherlands: Wolf Legal Publishers) and What you need to know to be an undergraduate in the U.S. (Beijing, China: Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press).

Topic: On Your Way to U.S. Colleges and Universities: Your Thinking is More Important than Your Score

Abstract: Misco’s lecture titled “On Your Way to U.S. Colleges and Universities: Your Thinking is More Important than Your Score” highlights three essential components of higher education in the United States: questioning, reflective inquiry within a tradition of pragmatism, and demonstrating understanding. Based on his new book What you need to know to be an undergraduate in the U.S. (2017) (Beijing, China: Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press), Prof. Misco will provide a useful framework for thinking about learning and assessment, as well as concrete examples for gaining admission to the best universities and succeeding once admitted.
