Dan Bernstein is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Kansas. He was at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln from 1973 until 2002, when he became Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at KU. His recent writing has focused on electronic course portfolios centered on student learning, and he works with colleagues from many fields of study to showcase the quality of their student work and the practices that have helped that work emerge. Recent grants from the Teagle and Spencer Foundations have enhanced writing and library skills through team-designed assignments and the use of assessment data in course and curriculum change. Currently he explores and evaluates various uses of technology to promote student understanding, and his ongoing courses are a laboratory for evaluating the impact of out of class web-based activities on deep understanding of conceptual material. A new grant from the Teagle Foundation is developing use of active and student centered learning in humanities, both in and out of class time. He was a Charter Member of the University of Nebraska Academy of Distinguished Teachers, and he was a Carnegie Scholar in 1998. Recently he received the J.
