Welcome!

I created this page years ago as a way to introduce myself to Rider students (but if that doesn't describe you, you're still welcome to browse!). If you're looking for a list of publications, that's at the bottom of this page. 

I've been teaching at Rider since 1992. Before that I worked as a test developer and researcher at the Educational Testing Service (in Princeton, NJ); taught middle and high school and helped run a large gifted/talented program (in Washington County, MD); developed and ran a program for adolescents at a small psychiatric hospital (in Leitersburg, MD); worked as a newspaper reporter (in Tokyo, Japan); served as an guide/interpreter for the United States Information Agency (in Osaka Japan); worked in the paint shop of a large factory (in Takamatsu, Japan); and drove a truck (throughout the Mid-Atlantic region). I liked all those jobs, but I like teaching at Rider best.

I did my undergraduate work at Yale, where I double majored in psychology and Japanese Studies (B.A., 1972, magna cum laude). I received a Ph.D. from Rutgers University in cognitive psychology in 1991.

Much of my research and writing has been in the area of creativity, and that work has been supported by generous grants from the National Science Foundation, the Educational Testing Service, the Carnegie Foundation, the National Center for Educational Statistics, and Rider and Rutgers Universities.  (For a brief summary of some of the key findings of my research, see this 2014 YouTube video.)  I've won a few awards, such as the Award for Innovative Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Technology, presented by the Eighth National Conference on College Teaching and Learning (in 1997), the Daniel E. Berlyne Award of the American Psychological Association for the year's best research in the area of creativity and/or the arts (in 1993), and the Iorio Research Award (in 2007). I was elected a fellow of the American Psychological Association, and am a member of the editorial boards of several scholarly journals, including the Journal of Creative Behavior (the oldest and most widely read creativity research journal); the American Psychological Association's newest journal, Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts; and the International Journal of Thinking & Problem Solving. (For more biography, see this interview that Roeper Review published in January 2009.)

A few extracurricular interests:

I enjoy tennis, and I have a real passion for Ping-Pong. I play the guitar, and if you take one of my classes you may be subject to a singing review of the course at some point.

Three pictures:

For those of you who haven't been in my classes or met me somewhere on campus yet, here are three photos. The beautiful woman in the center is Sylvia, my wife of many years. Sylvia is a poet, a professor of English (at Gloucester County College), a writer, and the most wonderful thing that ever happened to me. Finding Sylvia (and convincing her that she had found me) was an incredible bit of luck, but it wasn't easy. She was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, and she lived there and in Sao Paulo, Brasil, before immigrating to the U.S. (as a result, English is actually her third language). Even in the U.S. we grew up in rather different worlds, she in New York City and I in the Appalachian Mountains of western Maryland. My unseen Ping-Pong opponent is our daughter Heather, who is the other most wonderful thing that ever happened to me. Heather is a tireless volunteer for 100 good causes and an all-around amazing, optimistic and upbeat person. She graduated from Hamilton College in 2000 and received her Master's degree in Special Education from Simmons College in 2003. She is currently working as a special education teacher.

An invitation:

If you've gotten this far, you know far too much about me for us not to have met, so I hope you'll stop by my office (Memorial 102) to say hello. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Disney World Course:

My wife and I occasionally teach a course at Disney World. We start with weekend meetings in New Jersey, then spend five days at Disney World. It's a three-credit course offered through my wife's college, Gloucester County College.

Publications:

Most of my research has been in the area of creativity, although I have also done work in other areas, such as cooperative learning, teacher preparation, artificial intelligence, and (most recently) free will. Below I've listed many of my professional publications over the past 20 years or so. The ones that have been highlighted can be downloaded as pdf files. If any of these topics interest you, I'd love to talk to you about them -- or perhaps about research you might want to do that's related to one of these topics. If you are looking for a more complete CV (with Presentations and other activities) please email me at baer@rider.edu.
