Dr. Eric Smith earned his B.S. in psychology from Ursinus College and an M.A./Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Virginia, where his graduate research work was supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Dr. Smith’s research interests revolve around two foci: (1) how children and adults interact and are impacted by various forms of fiction (e.g., pretend play, storybooks, narratives, etc.); and (2) the scholarship of teaching and learning (e.g., how do study guides impact student learning).
