Example text

Before the war graduate students in psychology engaged in research with a faculty member not very long after entering graduate school. If you quizzed faculty about the wisdom or underlying “theory” for such early immersion, they would in one or another way have said “you learn by doing,” and they could point to a research literature justifying the practice. The fact is that the proposed curriculum was not in any deliberate way informed by this or that theory or conception of what makes for a context of productive learning.

If you go by what is taught in graduate department courses in theory and practice, the answer is: nothing. Whatever status I have had in psychology was based on research which met the conventional criteria of “good” research. That is to say, the research had a very clear focus, its methodologies were reasonably objective, statistical analysis was appropriate, and the results were capable of and indeed were replicable. What I have done and written in the past 3 decades is known only to those psychologists with an interest in education, and no one has to tell them that being identified with that field immediately marginalizes you in the psychological community.

So, for example, in graduate school I knew that in any department a professor had more status than an associate or assistant professor, just as I knew there was an undergraduate and graduate dean, a provost, a president, and a board of trustees. If asked how faculty were selected, how promotions came about, how a chairman of a department was selected and Basic and Applied Psychology 21 by whom, what the powers of the president were, and what decisions a board of trustees could make, I would have needed less than a page to write my answers.
