John Henning, an educator with more than 30 years of experience in teaching and teacher education, has been appointed chair of the College of Education's Department of Teacher Education. Henning will assume his new responsibilities on July 1, 2009. 

Currently with the Department of Educational Psychology and Foundations at University of Northern Iowa, Henning comes to Ohio University with a breadth of experience. "Dr. Henning has a distinguished and diverse record in education as both a public school teacher and professor," Dean Renée A.

As chair of teacher education, Henning will provide leadership in academic programming, course and program evaluation, curriculum planning and long-range planning.

"He is a great match for the College of Education," said Ginger Weade, current interim chair for teacher education. "His teaching and scholarship are widely known, and he has recognized the strength and vitality of our students, our faculty and our programs." 

Henning said he was excited to become part of Ohio University's respected teacher education program. "I'm looking forward to working with the department's committed and talented faculty," he added.

Henning joined the University of Northern Iowa in 1999 after serving as a high school teacher at West Branch High School in Beloit, Ohio, and Marlington High School in Alliance, Ohio. During his time at the University of Northern Iowa, Henning received both the College of Education Outstanding Faculty Research Award and the College of Education Outstanding Faculty Teaching Award. 

Henning holds a bachelor's degree in agriculture from The Pennsylvania State University, a master's degree in vocational education from Kent State University and a doctoral degree in educational psychology from Kent State University.

Henning is the author of "Using Action Research to Improve Instruction: An Interactive Guide for Teachers" and "The Art of Discussion-Based Teaching: Opening Up Conversation in the Classroom."
