I empower scholars and practitioners to make evidence-based decisions that fosters individual wisdom and cultivate collective wisdom. Together with my colleagues, I prepare students for jobs that are not yet created.
Influencing generations of scholars and scholar-practitioners through mentored scholarship. It is important to have faculty and student engagement in each other’s research, teaching, and service scholarship projects as part of the professorate mentoring process. This compatibility and common professional interest help ensure long-term collegiality as students join and move through the ranks of academic scholarship.
Innovation drives how I think about and advance scholarship. I generate, integrate, and disseminate research, teach and provide service in the area of workforce innovation in our growing global knowledge economy.
My students require integration of my research into my teaching to provide the first-hand experience with reading, interpreting and creating new theories and practices that guide workforce innovation. This integration provides a seamless transition from the theories of the classroom into the everyday innovative process and practices for the global workforce.
