Ken Miller, department chair and professor of science education and educational theory and practice at Montana State University Billings, received a distinguished alumni award from the University of Wyoming’s College of Education. Recipients were recognized during a dinner in September at the University of Wyoming.
With a strong foundation and passion for science, Miller sought to be a successful educator. Miller soon discovered that students were just going through the motions of learning science and needed a deeper understanding. This started his journey of researching teaching and learning methods at the University of Wyoming’s doctoral program in curriculum and instruction, of which he earned his Ph.D. in 1990.
An educator for more than 30 years, Miller has had a successful career at Montana State University Billings as an educator and leader, bringing in several million in grants for Montana educators and students alike.
