Thomas Davis

Dr. Davis began teaching at Nichols in 1996. Since then, he has published a number of papers including “students’ perceptions and reported use of their memories after a memory-improvement courses” and presented seminars related to students’ engagement in virtual communities; the challenges of collaborative teaching; and the psychology of advertising, to name a few.  He reviewed the textbook, Psychology around Us before publication.

Dr. Davis teaches with the belief that the problems of the future can only be solved by inspiring original applications, fresh connections, and novel ideas. Application is the foundation of his approach. Whether students are designing personality surveys for Mars-bound astronauts or using statistical software to solve a mystery in a final exam designed as a statistics novel, he believes that creative application leads
