Please note: as an emeritus faculty member, Marilla Svinicki does not actively teach or supervise students for the Educational Psychology department, but welcomes inquiries about past and current work. Dr. Svinicki's primary areas of research and practice have been the application of principles of learning and motivation to instruction in higher education and the development of faculty and graduate students as teachers. Recent research centered on classroom community, individual and group goal orientation during group work, innovations in clinical education for medical students, and Teaching Assistant training. She is recognized as an expert in theory and research-based instructional design, an interest that is currently being shared through her affiliation with medical education at the Dell Medical School at UT Austin. Dr. Svinicki also has expertise in working with teachers to improve the learning in their classrooms and with students to help improve their strategies for learning. She has published widely about these topics, but her most well known book is McKeachie's Teaching Tips: Strategies, Research and Theory for College and University Teachers. Written in collaboration with Wilbert McKeachie, this book has been used around the world by university teachers interested in learning evidence-based practices in teaching. In addition, Dr. Svinicki has served as chief editor for the New Directions for Teaching and Learning, and writes a column in the National Teaching and Learning Forum, a newsletter for university faculty and is often invited to speak about these topics at other universities in the US and elsewhere.
