Duke's Department of Psychology & Neuroscience welcomes Dr. Bridgette Martin Hard, who will be joining P&N as an Associate Professor of the Practice on July 1, 2017. Dr. Hard received her PhD in Psychology from Stanford University and currently leads Stanford’s Psychology One Program. She also offers a year-long teacher training program for PhD students and advanced undergraduates to develop their teaching skills and discover creative ways to integrate research and teaching.
"Joining the faculty at Duke is a dream-come-true for me and my family," Hard wrote in an e-mail. "I’m originally from NC and have been waiting for just the right opportunity to return to my roots while embracing new challenges. I can’t wait to share my love of teaching with my Duke colleagues and students. I’m also looking forward to growing as an educator and scholar by developing new courses and research."
Dr. Hard is also a textbook author and co-organizes two conferences for psychology teachers, the Psychology One Conference and the National Institute on the Teaching of Psychology (NITOP). Her research explores the intersection of psychology and pedagogy: She uses data from the classroom to extend psychological theories and uses insights from psychology to inform new classroom practices.
Welcome Dr. Hard!
