Wilfred McClay on John Dewey

I didn't realize this until recently, but Bill McClay, former SunTrust Chair of Excellence in Humanities, was filmed by C-Span during his class on American Intellectual and Culture History at UTC. On February 11, 2003 he gave a lecture on "John Dewey and Progressive Era Education Reform." Take a look at the video here.

Aired on Saturday, April 6, 2013, below is information about his talk.

John Dewey (1859-1952) was a leader in the Progressive Era reform movement in education, and his writings on education are still considered influential to this day. University of Tennessee at Chattanooga professor Wilfred McClay examines the life and writings of John Dewey, with a focus on Dewey’s work in education.
