Do You Feel Like a Superhero in Your Classroom?

About our Guest: Daniel Bergman

Daniel J. Bergman, Ph.D., is a Professor and Program Chair of Science Education at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. Like Superman, Dr. Bergman considers the Sunflower State his adoptive home. Unlike Superman, Dr. Bergman cannot leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Dr. Bergman taught middle and high school science in Nebraska and Iowa, and currently works with students and teachers from kindergarten to graduate school and every grade in between. He has given nearly a hundred educational presentations at teacher conventions, school workshops, and research conferences across the continental United States.

Dr. Bergman has published in various scholarly and professional avenues such as Edutopia, Phi Delta Kappan, New Teacher Advocate, The Clearing House, Teacher Educator, Teaching and Teacher Education, Journal of Technology and Teacher Education, Science & Children, Science Scope, The Science Teacher, and Journal of College Science Teaching.

As a fan of science, teaching, and superheroes, Dr. Bergman is the ultimate SuperNerd. He writes about these passions at and elsewhere, including the book Teaching is for Superheroes! (Jossey-Bass/Wiley) – coming May 2023!
