Dr. Laura Carter-Stone, under the guidance of Kevin Leander, has been awarded the Otto Bassler Outstanding Dissertation Award for Peabody College’s Department of Teaching and Learning. Her dissertation delves into how dramatic improvisation can inspire more democratic, just, and vital teaching methods.
