Josh is one of that rarest of breeds: An expert in pedagogy who not only understands theories of instruction, but implements them effortlessly. In short, he is himself a wonderful teacher, and I can’t recommend his course highly enough!”
– Christopher R. Fee, Ph.D., Chair of the English department at Gettysburg College“Josh Eyler loves to learn how people learn. As a professional teaching and learning center director, he has years of experience helping professors better understand how to share their knowledge with students. His tips help students enjoy learning efficiently.”
– Dr. Bethany M. Usher, Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education, George Mason University“Josh has spent many years in the classroom, and just as many becoming an expert on the research on teaching and learning. So he is a master at translating complex theories into pragmatic ideas for the classroom. He is also a gifted storyteller, inviting his students to join him on adventures. So if you’re interested in a lecture series that is equal parts theoretical, exciting, and useful, I can’t recommend Josh more!”– Elizabeth Barre,Executive Director, Teaching and Learning Collaborative, Wake Forest University
