Speaking & Professional Development


When I teach and provide professional development, I am not a teapot, and students and teachers are not teacups. I don’t fill heads with information while others soak it all in.

Instead, my research on learning and memory propels my approach to teaching and speaking. I practice what I preach when it comes to retrieval practice and getting information out using powerful evidence-based strategies.

Highlights from my teaching experience:

  • Currently an Assistant Professor at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, teaching psychological science to exceptional undergraduate musicians
  • Extensive teaching experience in K-12 public schools, including certification in elementary education


Highlights from my professional development:

  • Presented more than 30 keynotes and workshops for K-12 and higher education audiences around the world
  • Modeling of research-based teaching strategies, interactive discussion with time to collaborate, and a personalized website
