I'm Skylar Davidson, a Ph.D. candidate and teaching associate in the department of sociology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, scheduled to complete my Ph.D. in July 2018.  I have taught a wide variety of sociology courses, and the innovative, evidence-based active learning methods I create and use allow my students to develop a solution-oriented perspective on current social science issues.  I have conducted research on active learning in order to identify how artistic activities and future-oriented activities can improve student outcomes.  You can browse some of my materials through the links at the sidebar.
