David Thornton Moore, an anthropologist of education and work, studies the process by which people learn outside of classrooms, especially in workplaces; the broader question underlying his work focuses on the situated nature of knowledge and learning. He has done extensive research and writing on experiential learning, internships and civic engagement at the high school and college levels. His work has been published in such journals as Harvard Educational Review , Anthropology and Education Quarterly , and Learning Inquiry . He coauthored Working Knowledge: Work-Based Learning and Education Reform (RoutledgeFalmer, 2004); his new book, Engaged Learning in the Academy: Challenges and Possibilities , is in press at Palgrave Macmillan. He was named Researcher of the Year by the National Society for Experiential Education in 2004, has given invited talks on experiential learning at such schools as Williams College, Princeton University and Queens College, and twice was the keynote speaker at the Martha’s Vineyard Institute on Experiential Education. His Gallatin courses have focused on the concepts of community, learning, experience and everyday life, as well as on research methods and the history of social thought. He is one of the organizers of Gallatin’s Community Learning Initiative, and he served for more than five years as the associate dean of the Gallatin School.
