Saturday, February 14, 2015

A Kansas University alumna who has found success on "Sesame Street" will share stories from her career with the children's television series Monday.

Rosemarie Truglio, senior vice president of global curriculum and contest at Sesame Workshop, will speak at 6:30 p.m. in Alderson Auditorium in the Kansas Union on the KU campus. The lecture, titled "Lessons from 'Sesame Street,'" is free and open to the public.

In her work with the Sesame Workshop, Truglio is responsible for the development of the interdisciplinary curriculum on which “Sesame Street” is based and oversees curriculum and content development for all Sesame Workshop co-productions worldwide.

Truglio, who was named a Distinguished Alumna of the KU College of Liberal Arts & Sciences in 2013, received her master’s degree in human development and family life in 1986 from KU. She later earned a doctorate in developmental and child psychology in 1990, also from KU.
