Daniel Paul Corts Augustana College, USA

Daniel Corts earned a PhD in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Tennessee and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the teaching of psychology at Furman University. He has been at Augustana College for 17 years where he has stayed busy mentoring student research. Dan’s work in supervising independent research, mentoring senior capstones, and bringing students into his lab has led to a number of publications and over 100 conference presentations. In addition, he works with various public, k-12 educational agencies to acquire and evaluate grants.  These education projects have allowed Dan’s students to see how the research methods they practice in the lab can be applied in practical situations as well. Dan is an active member of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology and recently completed his term as President of Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology. Dan’s most significant publication experience is as coauthor of the Introductory Psychology text, Psychological Science: Modeling Scientific Literacy (2e, Pearson) with Mark Krause. After a day of musing about methodology and ethics with his students, he enjoys spending time with his family where his kids, Jonah  and Sophie, have proclaimed such topics off-limits.
