Teaching and Research Interests:

Dr. Mont's doctoral study (investigated the combined use of cognitive activities and a form of experiential learning–arts-based learning), and a review of the related literature has also made her more aware of the positive connection between cognitive and experiential experiences.

The adult and higher education literature suggests that educators are increasingly exploring the role of this combination (Clover, 2006; Eisner, 1972, 2001, 2002, 2005; Finley, 2005; Greene, 1995; Lawrence, 2005; Wesley, 2006). The literature suggests that combining traditional methods with inventive techniques recognize diverse ways of learning, and they seem to be more engaging for learners and educators. Therefore, she remains interested in the introduction and application of the combined use of cognitive and experiential learning experiences.
