Spencer Benson, PhD, is the Founder and Director of Education Innovations International Consulting. He is the former Director at the Centre for Teaching and Learning Enhancement at the University of Macau (2013-2017), and former Director at the Center for Teaching Excellence at the University of Maryland (2003-2013). Spencer has worked in international faculty development for more that 10 yrs. His current focus is on STEM education and evidence-based assessments for learning. Much of faculty development has focused on pedagogy and student engagement with less attention to the engine (assessment) that drives student learning. When not engaged in work related activities, Spencer continues to travel and hopes to reach his personal goal of having visited 100 countries in the next few years.
