Dr. Kevin Yee
Director of the Academy of Teaching and Learning Excellence @University of South Florida
Kevin Yee is the Director of the Academy of Teaching and Learning Excellence (ATLE) at the University of South Florida. In 2016, Dr. Yee also assumed the duties of Assistant Dean in Undergraduate Studies, and currently supervises the offices of the Academic Success Center (Writing Studio, Tutoring, and the SMART Lab), and ATLE. Dr. Yee has always striven for highly interactive teaching. He collects ideas for innovative approaches in the classroom and curates an internationally-recognized list of interactive techniques. His research interests are broad, and focus on everything from emerging technology and Web 2.0 tools for teaching, to the pedagogy of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and concepts such as student motivation or gamification. He is firmly in the camp that the science of learning, as evolved from cognitive psychology, is foundational for effective teaching practices.
