A volume in Contemporary Pioneers in Educational Psychology:
Theory, Research, and Applications
Series Editor: Héfer Bembenutty, Queens College of the City University of New York
This volume traces the socialization processes, professional development, career paths, and theories
and research of contemporary pioneers in education and psychology. This volume contains interviews
of leading scholars who are at the vanguard of teaching and learning. They shared how their childhood
development influenced their theoretical paths and research endeavors and revealed their thoughts,
beliefs, and experiences that made them who they are today. These scholars responded to questions
pertaining to their childhood socialization, initial interest in education and psychology, role models,
research interests and major findings, future direction of their research, educational implications derived from their research, and
perception of their legacy. They are real people who have had experiences like anybody else, but who found homes and teachers
who supported them. While in college, they found educators who mentored them.
Readers will find that this volume offers them an opportunity to learn the background of contemporary pioneers in education
and psychology, provides helpful sources where they can learn about how major theories developed and where they are moving,
and reveals the personal anecdotes that influenced the conceptualization of contemporary theories and research. Educators and
students will find that this book provides hope and a rejuvenated enthusiasm about the status of education and psychology and that
they too can be leaders in their own ways.
