PhD, Educational Psychology, Michigan State University<br>BA, Psychology, Brooklyn College

In his teaching and scholarship, Vassallo works to merge perspectives to critically explore issues related to teaching and learning, especially in the context of academic self-regulation. He draws from sociology, philosophy and educational psychology to critically examine some of the ethical, conceptual and pedagogical complexities associated with teaching self-regulated learning. Using these perspectives, Vassallo explores the implicit and explicit roles that choice, control, autonomy and freedom play in efforts to teach and learn self-regulation. Vassallo published Critical Educational Psychology to widespread acclaim in 2017.
