Fourth Annual J.P. Hendrickson Faculty Scholar and Herbert Cheever Jr. Liberal Arts Lecture.
Michael Dianovsky’s lecture focuses on educating and preparing students for the changing pace of today’s world by teaching them how to learn rather than how to conform to the world around them and to conditions that may no longer exist in the future.
Dianovsky, a native of Hanover Park, Illinois received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Chicago in Learning Sciences with a focus in Chemical Education. As a postdoctoral fellow at Rutgers University, he participated in a National Science Foundation research project that developed and evaluated an inquiry-based curriculum for middle-school biology classes. Dianovsky is currently in his fourth year at SDSU where he has developed a research program in chemical education.
