Judith Parker, Ed.D. adjunct instructor, physics

With an Ed.D. degree in adult learning and leadership from Teachers College at Columbia University and an M.S. in physics from Purdue University, education and physics have been intertwined throughout the life of Dr. Judith Parker. Because Parker earned both of her advanced degrees as an adult learner, it is easy for her to see a little of herself in each of her Wescoe students and relate to their challenges. 

She also teaches astronomy and general physics to Muhlenberg College’s traditional-age students. As a long time global education manager at 3M Company in Minnesota, Parker designed and taught hybrid leadership development courses to 3M’s technical center managers throughout Asia almost twenty years ago. With her varied background in education, technology and physics, Parker was the ideal choice to teach Muhlenberg’s first hybrid learning course – introduction to astronomy.
