Kevin Yee

Kevin Yee joined the University of Central Florida Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning as its director in 2022. Prior to that, he was the director of the teaching center at the University of South Florida for 10 years. He has held 9-month faculty positions at Duke University, Pomona College, the University of Iowa, and the University of California–Irvine.

Kevin earned his Ph.D. in German Literature from UC Irvine in 1997. He has taught a wide range of German language and culture courses, as well as courses in general humanities, film, and cultural studies, with a particular emphasis on popular culture. Recent classes include Interpreting Marvel’s Avengers, Critical Analysis of the Harry Potter Movies, Princess Fairy Tales, and Deconstructing Walt Disney World.

Kevin believes the science of learning provides a crucial foundation for instructors in the classroom, influencing everything from course design and assessment structure to classroom management and lesson planning. More recently, he has focused on developing resources for faculty related to AI fluency and how to use generative AI, such as ChatGPT, in the college classroom. He has been an invited speaker on these and other topics in pedagogy both domestically and internationally.
