2018 Keynote Speaker: Dr. Marilyn Friend


Marilyn Friend, Ph.D., has spent her career as a general education teacher, special education teacher, teacher educator, and staff developer. She is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Specialized Education Services at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where she taught coursework on inclusive practices and collaboration among service providers. She has served on the Board of the Teacher Education Division of the Council for Exceptional Children. She has consulted with school professionals nationally and internationally (more than 1000 presentations and projects in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia) as they collaborate to educate their students, assisting them to form productive and efficient work teams, to learn the best ways to manage awkward or adversarial conversations, and to communicate effectively with parents. Her particular areas of interest include skills for collaboration, co-teaching, inclusive school practices, team building, shared problem solving, interpersonal communication, conflict and controversy, and home-school communication. She is the author of several texts including: Special Education: Contemporary Perspectives for School Professionals, Interactions: Collaboration Skills for School Professionals  (with Dr. Lynne Cook), Including Students with Special Needs: A Practical Guide for Classroom Teachers (with Dr. William Bursuck), and Co-Teach! A Manual for Creating and Sustaining Classroom Partnerships. In addition, she is the co-producer on a series of videotapes about collaboration, co-teaching, and inclusion, including "The Power of Two," and the author of more than numerous articles on collaboration, inclusive practices, and related topics. We are HONORED to have her speak at our conference, and we hope you will join us!
