Beth M. Schwartz received her PhD in cognitive psychology from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1991. She is now the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost at Heidelberg University where she serves as the chief academic officer. Prior to that time, she was on the faculty at Randolph College (formerly Randolph-Macon Woman’s College) where she was the Thoresen Professor of Psychology, Department Chair, and Assistant Dean of the College. Dr. Schwartz’s early work focused on factors that influence the accuracy of child witnesses, in particular how changes in the legal system can create a more age-appropriate interview for young children. Her research focuses on the scholarship of teaching and learning, examining pedagogical changes that can lead to more effective teaching and learning, and investigating the influence of honor systems on academic integrity. Over the years, she provided undergraduate students with opportunities for research experience, involved students in her research program, and advised students when conducting their own investigations. As a result, many students have authored published work, presented at national conferences, and have obtained doctorate degrees. Dr. Schwartz worked with over 1,000 students at Randolph College. She has over 100 professional presentations at conferences and is the author, co-author, and co-editor of over 20 books, book chapters, and professional articles in scholarly peer-reviewed journals. Her work has appeared in journals such as Journal of Higher Education, Law and Human Behavior, Ethics and Behavior, and Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
Dr. Schwartz was the founder of the Faculty Development Center at Randolph, serving as Faculty Development Coordinator from 2000 to 2007 on her campus, providing faculty with programming focused on refining teaching to become most effective in the classroom. She is co-author of An EasyGuide to APA Style (2015, with Eric Landrum and Regan Gurung), Optimizing Teaching and Learning: Catalyzing Pedagogical Research (2009, with Regan Gurung), co-editor of Evidenced-Based Teaching in Higher Education (2012, with Regan Gurung), and co-editor of Child Abuse: A Global View (2001, with Michelle McCauley and Michele Epstein). She is a member of the American Psychological Association, a Fellow of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (Division 2 of APA), and a member of the Association for Psychological Science.
