Kirk McDermid

Kirk McDermid is a tenured assistant professor in Montclair State University’s department of Philosophy and Religious Studies.  His research focuses on epistemology (the nature of knowledge), with forays into philosophy of science, plagiarism and learning & assessment, and has taught a wide variety of courses from logic & decision theory to the philosophy of sport.

He has taught several online and hybrid courses in philosophy, and has been dissatisfied with all of them – so far.  Currently, Kirk is working on incorporating wikis with database functionality (SMW+, or semantic mediawiki) into his courses to facilitate student-driven collaboration and differentiated learning.
