Jared Bartels received his Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of Memphis in 2008. He then worked as a postdoctoral associate in the Center for Learning Innovation at the University of Minnesota Rochester and taught at several other colleges before coming to Peru State College.

Dr. Bartels has been involved in clinical neuropsychology research examining the psychometric properties of various assessment tools such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children. This research has been published in various journals including the Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment and Aging, Neuropsychology and Cognition, and the International Journal of Neuroscience. His primary research interests, however, are in educational psychology and the teaching of psychology.

He has also coauthored a social psychology textbook, Social Psychology for Today’s World.
