Janie H. Wilson
I received my Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina in 1994. Since that time, I have been teaching and conducting research at Georgia Southern University. In the classroom, I specialize in teaching and learning in statistics and research methods. Research interests include rapport in teaching based on empirical data on the first day of class, electronic communications, interactions with students in a traditional classroom, syllabus design, and the development and validation of the Professor-Student Rapport Scale. Publications include two recent texts with Sage: An EasyGuide to Research Presentations and An EasyGuide to Research Design and SPSS. I have had the pleasure to contribute numerous chapters to edited books and have co-edited several books related to teaching and learning. I publish extensively on the scholarship of teaching and learning and have offered over 60 conference presentations, including several invited keynote addresses. For 2016, I am honored to serve as the President of Division Two of APA. My primary initiative is sharing the science of psychology with students and the general community.
