Berliner, regents’ professor emeritus of education at Arizona State University.
David Berliner has taught at the Universities of Arizona and Massachusetts, at Teachers College and Stanford University, as well as at universities in Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland. Dr. Berliner is a member of the National Academy of Education, a Fellow of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, and a past president of both the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the Division of Educational Psychology of the American Psychological Association (APA).
Solidifying his reputation as a passionate, resourceful force in educational research, Berliner began his career by studying the critical use of instructional time in classrooms, citing student engagement as the most important element of efficacy. Berliner’s publication of several influential works including: Educational Psychology (with N. L. Gage), The Manufactured Crisis (with B. J.
