Bob Kolvoord (Ph.D. Cornell University) is a Professor of Integrated Science and Technology at
James Madison University. He holds a joint appointment in the College of Education. He is currently
serving as the Interim Dean of the College of Integrated Science and Engineering and the Interim
Head of Engineering. He also co-directs the Center for STEM Education and Outreach. His research
focuses on the development of curricular and training materials for the use of geospatial
technologies in K-16 classrooms (in collaboration with K. Keranen and P. Rittenhouse), as well as the
development of student spatial thinking skills through the use of geospatial technologies (in
collaboration with Dr. D. Uttal and Dr. M. Charles). Kolvoord is the co-author or co-editor of three
