I am the Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana where I also teach occasional courses in both the Education and Environmental Studies programs. Prior to my work at Earlham, I was the Director of the Poplar Ridge Experiential Learning Center at the University of Virginia. I currently serve on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Experiential Education and the Journal of Outdoor and Environmental Education. I am also a Teagle Pedagogy Fellow with the Great Lakes College Association.
My most recent publications include: Experiential Education in the College Context: What It Is, How It Works, and Why It Matters (2015), Routledge Press; Beyond Learning By Doing: Theoretical Currents in Experiential Education (2012), also published by Routledge Press; and “The Campus and Community As A Learning Laboratory: Possibilities and Limitations” (2013) in Teaching Sustainability: Perspectives from the Humanities and Social Sciences, Texas A & M Press.
