Dane Joseph, PhD

Associate Professor of Education




Dane Joseph joined the College of Education in 2015, after five years at Pacific University in the Division of Social Sciences. His scholarly interests are in formal learning theory, methods in experimental philosophy, as well as practical reasoning and decision-making phronesis. Much of his daily work involves constructing theories and models of change that frame complex education problems, and he draws from manifold disciplines.

Past projects included working on theoretical and empirical validation for multiple-choice test-key designs, as well as the limits of rationality and sensemaking in ethics board review protocols. He, his wife (Morgan), and their two sons (Ira and Clarence) attend Salem Alliance Church.
