Dr. McKee received a Ph.D. in Developmental and Child Psychology from the University of Kansas, and has been teaching both online and in traditional “on ground” classroom settings for over 15 years. In addition to teaching, Dr. McKee is the Academic Program Coordinator of the B.S. in Psychology Program at Walden. Dr. McKee's research interests include the use of well-established principles of applied behavior analysis in the design of model behavioral programs for elementary and secondary educational settings, as well as in the design of effective, proactive, parenting interventions. At the university-level, Dr. McKee's research has included the facilitation of classroom interventions specifically designed to decrease common misconceptions people typically hold about various areas of psychology (particularly the "myths and misconceptions" that surround psychoanalysis and behaviorism). Dr. McKee is also interested in the “Critical Thinking” research as it pertains to adult learning strategies in both academic and employment settings.
