Professor Eugene de Silva Speaks on Research-Based Teaching

By IGI Global on Apr 28, 2015
IGI Global Editor Eugene de Silva speaks on research-based teaching methods and why an interdisciplinary approach is necessary in today's education.

Professor de Silva's title Cases on Research-Based Teaching Methods in Science Education addresses the problems currently facing science education in the USA and the UK, and suggests a new hands-on approach to learning. This book is an essential reference source for policymakers, academicians, researchers, educators, curricula developers, and teachers as they strive to improve education at the elementary, secondary, and collegiate levels.

This premier reference is a part of the Advances in Educational Technologies and Instructional Design (AETID) book series, a resource where researchers, students, administrators, and educators alike can find the most updated research and theories regarding technology’s integration within education and its effect on teaching as a practice.

Eugene de Silva has been an educator for over 25 years. As a professor of physics and chemistry, he developed the first online college physics programs under the auspices of Walters State Community College and the Board of Regents for the State of Tennessee. He established the National Accrediting Commission for Martial Arts (NACMA)- a registered charity- and Virginia Research Institute (VRI) – a non-profit organization in the United States in 2004. These foundations were set in place to spark the younger generation’s interest in furthering their education and research. He has been the President of the Tennessee Science Department Chairs Association since 2008. He is also the Chair of Institute of Physics UK/USA Branch (South Eastern USA). He is an Executive Member of the Tennessee Academy of Sciences. De Silva has written several books including textbooks in physics and chemistry and is an internationally recognized educator with his name entered in the Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in American Education, and Who’s Who in America.
