David W. Johnson receives Jeffrey Rubin Theory-to-Practice Award
David W. Johnson, professor of Educational Psychology, was awarded the Jeffrey Rubin Theory to Practice Award, which is cosponsored by the International Association for Conflict Management and the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School. It is given to unique individuals whose professional contributions demonstrate a strong competence in (a) theory development and empirical research, (b) ability to move effectively and skillfully between theory and practice in their professional activities, (c) history of conducting rigorous research that has important practical implications, and (d) history of translating findings in a manner that makes them accessible to students and practitioners. Prof. Johnson's nomination was described as "an exemplar of the best the field has to offer in terms of theory, practice, and their intersection." The award will be presented at the association's annual conference in Boston in June 2010.
