Bob Williams, Professor of Education & Cognitive Science

Chair of the Mielke Family Department of Education

Since 2004 I’ve been teaching courses in teacher education and education studies, supervising student teachers, and coordinating teacher performance assessments. I also teach courses in cognitive science (my Ph.D. field) and linguistics. In my research, I study how people construct meaning in instructional situations, collaborative problem-solving, and creative activity, focusing on the role of gesture in building shared understandings.
