<p class="Body">I am a people-watching, music, and documentary junkie who brings these addictions into my classroom and psychological research. Currently, I am collaborating with Southern Kentucky Rehabilitation Hospital to develop music-paired rehabilitation therapy for stroke patients. I actually get to live my dream of being a psychological DJ! Who gets to do that??? I also investigate moral attitudes about promiscuity and how my classroom experience changes student attitudes towards the criminal justice system. As for documentaries, my courses are famous for exposing students to fascinating real-world examples such as cult development, pleading insanity, spree shooter profiles, the prison system, prejudice, degenerative brain disease treatment, and the extreme collective mindset of North Korea. If I were asked to choose my favorite course to teach, I wouldn&rsquo;t be able to. The truth is, I love them all&mdash;even Research Methods. Come hang out with me!</p>

<p>As an educational psychologist, my teaching seeks to prepare undergraduate and graduate students to become reflective, responsive and resourceful professionals by connecting theoretical, scientific, and applied psychological knowledge with practice. My overarching teaching goals are: 1) to get my learners to understand the material at a deep conceptual level so that they may transfer and apply that knowledge to their own professional domains and 2) to teach my learners how to be self-regulated and meta-cognitive so that they will be equipped to be life-long learners.</p>
<h2>Research Interests</h2>
<p>My research aims to impact the examination of teacher quality and is broken down into three main areas: 1) student learning, motivation, and professional development, 2) the role of educational psychology in teacher education, and 3) program effectiveness with respect to teacher and student outcomes.</p>
<h2>Courses Taught</h2>

<li>PSY 310 Educational Psychology</li>

<p>I am the Director of the Doctor of Psychology in Applied Psychology program and the director for the <a href="http://www.wku.edu/psychology/research/car/index.php">Clinical/Applied Research (CAR) Group</a>.

Think anorexia nervosa, but with large men who think they are too small. I am also interested in sport fan behaviors, that is, what are the causes and consequences of being attached to a sport time.&nbsp; I have a number of active studies in each area.&nbsp;</p>

<p><strong>Research Interests</strong></p>
<p>I have a variety of research interests that engage me in many types of projects. &nbsp;In terms of populations older adults are a special focus with a sample graduate student project being mindfulness in older adults.&nbsp;I enjoy evaluation of psychological assessments and also examining aspects of learning, particularly college/adult learners. Currently I am working on a project on disputing learning styles. &nbsp; Other projects I have been engaged in with students include procrastination and parenting style, online gaming, communication style and social anxiety.</p>
<p class="APA6H2"><strong>Research Supervision</strong></p>
<p>I am willing to serve on a committee for any of these types of projects: MA theses, Ed.S. Specialist Projects, or Psy.D. Dissertations. I am retiring so cannot serve as director of record but am willing to do the &ldquo;heavy lifting&rdquo; on any of these projects that another committee member is willing to sign off on.&nbsp;</p>

<p>I especially love introducing students to the world of psychology! When they understand how the theory and research they are studying in class relate to the 'real world', it stimulates their desire to learn more. I emphasize application of psychological concepts as a measure of critical thinking - if you can apply it correctly, you understand it. I believe in service learning/civic engagement as an essential part of the learning process both in applying knowledge, as well as in contributing to the community. I also emphasize parenting strategies when appropriate - how understanding and using psychology and child development can make a person a more effective parent. Student advisement is another of my interests. In a large university like WKU, students need to know that a personal connection with faculty is there for them.</p>

<h3>Research Interests</h3>
<p>My research examines cognitive factors related to student learning and achievement. I am interested in how working memory capacity (the limited attentional resources we have available during effortful tasks) influences problem-solving and retrieval of information from long-term memory. Part of this work investigates methods for teaching effective strategies to individuals with low working memory capacity (i.e., fewer attentional resources).</p>

<h3>Research Interests</h3>
<p>I am interested in the roles of metacognitive and motivational processes in performance and psychological well-being. In addition, I am interested in cultural differences in metacognitive and motivational processes.</p>
<p>Example research questions investigated in my lab: Why do people have little insight into how well they have performed on tasks? How to improve metacognitive accuracy (e.g., the accuracy of performance self-assessment)? Are students motivated or paralyzed in anticipation of rapid performance feedback? &ndash; Does it depend on metacognitive beliefs about ability? Do incremental beliefs about ability ameliorate the negative effects of self-doubt on affect and self-esteem? Are there cultural differences in perception and effects of self-doubt?</p>
