My name is Michael Day. From 1982 to 2011 I was on the faculty of the University of Wyoming in the Adult & Post Secondary Education program. During this time my primary areas of scholarship were the historical underpinnings of the American Adult Education Movement, teaching adult learners, and the nature-adult relationship. I’ve worked and written in each of these areas — you’ll find some pieces attached to this blog. I was first introduced to higher education “awashed” in adult education principles by the overseas program of the University of Maryland in 1971 — i.e., a primary focus on learning, understanding, and a pedagogical strategy guided by connecting course content to the previous experiences of students. It was during this time I met and married Susan who shares my love for adventure. My doctoral degree work was completed at the University of Michigan in 1981.
