Dr. Ronald J. Weber
Director of the Humanitites Program &
the Masters of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies Program at
The University of Texas at El Paso
From 1997 to 2002 I served as a Distinguished Fellow of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at the University of Texas at El Paso and contributed to the development of the graduate teaching and learning seminar for PhD students in the Department of History at UTEP. In 2007 I published “Creating the Teaching Professor: Guiding Graduate Students to Become Effective Teachers” in the Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
I now serve as a reader and proposal evaluator for JoSTL. I am Executive Editor of Interdisciplinary Humanities, the journal of the Humanities Education and Research Association. I have written about the Roman family Caeionius in "Albinus: The Living Memory of a Fifth Century Personality" and published work on the Roman historian, Livy, in Collection Latomus Studies in Latin Literature and Roman History. Among my publications are “Young Marco Polo: The Long Term Effects of Study Abroad”.
I am currently compiling a collection of extended essays on the pedagogies of a successful study abroad course, which include “How to View a Museum,” “The Tough Job of Dealing with Distractions: Engaging Students in Daisy Miller,” and “Transforming Literature into Reality: Experiencing the Power of Place.”
