Meet our new faculty: Thomas Philip, education

By Public Affairs

Thomas Philip

Name: Thomas Philip
Department: Education
Degrees: B.S., electrical engineering and computer sciences, UC Berkeley, 1998; M.A., Ph.D., education, UC Berkeley, 2004, 2007
Research interests: I’m interested in how teachers make sense of power and hierarchy in classrooms, schools and society, and how they navigate and ultimately transform classrooms and institutions toward more equitable, just, and democratic practices and outcomes. In particular, I’m studying the possibilities and tensions that emerge with the use of digital learning technologies in classrooms.
Other interests: Biking, hiking and backpacking
