ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – Bradley Witzel, professor and special education program coordinator in the Richard W. Riley College of Education at Winthrop University, will lead the April 2 Provost's Spotlight on Scholarship Series session.

"The Studying of Math Interventions for Non-Strategic Learners" will begin at 11 a.m. in Dinkins Hall Auditorium. People are encouraged to bring their lunch.

Witzel’s lecture will focus on intervention (RTI) and multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) as educational approaches designed to provide interventions and academic assistance to students quickly after difficulties emerge. He will provide insight into the field of mathematics interventions with an emphasis on preventing failure in mathematics.

Witzel is an award-winning teacher and professor who has dozens of research and practitioner articles, seven books, a dozen educational videos and hundreds of presentations to his name. He is a governing board member of the Southeast Regional Educational Laboratory and serves as editor of “Focus on Inclusive Education” through the Association of Childhood Education International.

The inaugural Provost’s Spotlight on Scholarship Series highlights the research of five faculty members, providing the entire campus community with opportunities to learn more about the work and scholarship of Winthrop educators. This is the final session for the 2014-2015 academic year.
