Tanya Martini obtained her Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the University of Toronto and is a professor in the psychology department at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. She has been awarded the Brock University Distinguished Teaching Award and the Chancellor's Chair for Teaching Excellence. In addition to introductory psychology, she has also taught research methods and two courses designed to facilitate students' understanding of career-related skills. Dr. Martini's research explores skill-based learning outcomes in post-secondary education, and her most recent work has investigated students' views concerning skill-based learning across their degree program. She has a particular interest in students' ability to articulate the competencies that underlie skills such as critical thinking and collaboration, and their ability to recognize how university assignments foster transferable skills that are of interest to employers. Her research in this area was recognized by an appointment to the advisory board of the Future Skills Centre in partnership with the Conference Board of Canada.
