An assistant professor of Psychology at Ithaca College, Dr. Kathryn Caldwell teaches general psychology, developmental psychology, psychology of aging, and adolescent psychology. In her teaching, Kathryn emphasizes the relevance of psychology to the lives of her students, encouraging them to become critical, “systems” thinkers and self-aware, caring citizens. Kathryn integrates issues of sustainability into her teaching, challenging students to consider what motivates conservation behavior, how the natural world impacts wellbeing, and the impact of vocational and lifestyle choices on the community and environment. Kathryn’s current research interests include the teaching and learning of systems thinking, the value of intergenerational learning, especially for solving problems of sustainable living, and the relationship between mindfulness and sustainable values and behaviors. Kathryn holds a doctorate in Human Development from the University of Maryland, College Park, a master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Louisiana State University, and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Clemson University.
