Mike Drysdale, PhD

I am a creative and passionate learner who loves designing innovative learning experiences for myself and others. For the past 8 years, I have been doing this at Vincennes University. Presently, I help students learn in classes ranging from research and ethics in the social sciences to the psychological aspects of sports performance. It is engaging and rewarding work.

From the time that I was introduced to the field of psychology, I was hooked. In psychology, we really study and strive to understand why we do the things we do. There is so much that can be applied to our daily lives that will help improve who we are and what we do. That is what I look to share with others as much as I can.
