Keynote Speaker – Dr. Lindsay Masland

Lindsay Masland is the Lead of Transformative Teaching and Learning in the Center for Teaching and Learning for Student Success at Appalachian State University, where she develops and implements programming designed to support teachers in higher ed. 

She also is an Associate Professor affiliated with the undergraduate Psychology department and the graduate School Psychology MA/SSP degree program at App State, where she teaches courses in statistics, educational psychology, and pedagogy.  Lindsay serves as consulting editor for two journals that focus on teaching in higher ed — Teaching of Psychology and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Psychology. She has received several teaching awards —a  university-wide teaching award (the Appalachian State University Excellence in Teaching award) and an STP teaching award (the Jane S. Halonen Teaching Excellence Award for Early Career Psychologists).  Lindsay holds a BA and MA in experimental psychology from Wake Forest University and a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology with a concentration in Statistics from the University of Georgia.  When she’s not busy spouting the good news about transformative, inclusive teaching, she can be found performing musical theatre, baking needlessly elaborate cakes, and spending time with her husband, her two children, and her dog.
