Jeffrey Greene named an AERA Outstanding Reviewer

Jeffrey Greene, associate professor of learning science and psychological studies, has been named an Outstanding Reviewer by the American Educational Research Association.

Greene, who also serves as interim associate dean for academic affairs and director of graduate studies for the School, will be recognized at the 2018 AERA Annual Meeting in New York City in April.

Greene received the recognition for his work as a reviewer for the journal Review of Educational Research.

Greene was a 2016 recipient of the Richard E. Snow Award for Distinguished Early Contributions in Educational Psychology from Division 15 of the American Psychological Association.

He serves on the editorial boards of several journals and is an associate editor of Contemporary Educational Psychology.

Greene’s research focuses upon particular aspects of digital literacy, such as student cognition, regulation and beliefs in science and history domains.

He is the lead author, with two of his doctoral students, of the first meta-analysis of the body of literature on the relationship between epistemic cognition – how students think about knowledge and how that affects learning – and academic achievement. The article, co-authored with Brian Cartiff and Rebekah Duke, was published online earlier this month by the Journal of Educational Psychology.
