Kathryn (Katie) J. Strom, Ph.D Faculty Profile

Kathryn (Katie)  J.  Strom, Ph.D

Associate Professor

Department of Educational Leadership

Kathryn (Katie) Strom is an Associate Professor of Educational Leadership at California State University, East Bay and Director of CSUEB’s Center for Research on Equity and Collaborative Engagement. Dr. Strom combines multiple critical and complex/neomaterialist theories to study teacher learning and practice (particularly in support of multilingual youth), as well as to advocate more broadly for more relational, difference-affirmative ways of thinking-being-doing in education and academia.

Dr. Strom has been a leader in bringing theories of critical complexity to the field of teacher education. Most recently, she led a double special issue on non-linear perspectives in teacher development in the journal Professional Development in Education, overseeing the curation and publication of a set of 22 papers using multiple complexity perspectives to develop knowledge regarding teacher learning, development, and ongoing support. She is also the co-author of Becoming-Teacher: A Rhizomatic Look at First Year Teaching and Decentering the Researcher in Intimate Scholarship: Critical Posthuman Methodological Perspectives. Dr. Strom has participated as senior research personnel in projects including the federally-funded International Consortium of Multilingual Excellence in Education (ICMEE) and NSF-funded STEAM Language, Learning, and Identity for Multilingual Learners project, and currently serves as a research advisor to the Smithsonian Institute’s Network for Emergent Socio-Scientific Thinking (NESST). In 2021, Dr. Strom co-founded the Posthuman Research Nexus, a global organization that supports and connects scholars engaging in posthuman and other complexity perspectives through monthly research socials, mentoring workshops, and reading groups.

RESEARCH PROJECTS AND CONSULTANCIES 

  • Research Team Member, Network for Emergent Socio-Scientific Thinking (NESST), 2022-present
    • This project at the Smithsonian Institute brings together educational stakeholders across the globe to collaborate to foster more complex, relational, environmentally just ways of thinking and life. Currently, I am serving in two main roles: Conceptualizing, organizing, and leading a systematic literature review to map socio-scientific thinking across multiple sub-fields of education; and collaborating to develop professional development and doctoral curriculum emphasizing complex perspectives in education.
  • Senior Researcher, Analyzing the Nexus between Social Positioning and Science Identity Development Among English Language Learners, 2021-present
    • This NSF-funded project addresses the pressing need for empirical studies that combine theoretical perspectives from second language education, linguistics, and science education to understand science identity development among ELLs.The research will generate understandings about the role language-based perceptions have in ELLs' language identities, and more specifically, will measure the impact of advantaged positioning on ELLs' science identity development over time. Further, the project will formulate new and innovative methods teachers can use to recognize and promote competent science performance and language identity development among ELLs.
