I am the Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs and Professor of Education at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana where my work focuses on strategic academic initiatives. My scholarship centers around experiential and environmental education in the K-16 context. 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.
