Dr. Jeff M. Allen
My passion is learning and performance innovation. I research, teach and provide service in the area of learning and performance innovations for education and the workforce. My students require an integration of my research into my teaching to provide first-hand experience with reading, interpreting, and creating new theories and practices that guide learning and performance. This integration provides a seamless transition from the theories of the classroom into the everyday innovative process and practices of the corporate and educational workplaces. As the Director of the Center for Knowledge Solutions at the University of North Texas, it is my goal to empower scholars and scholar-practitioners to make evidence-based decisions that optimize learning and performance systems to improve organizational knowledge. The uniqueness of the center is learning and performance across disciplines and professions. Our mission is to generate, integrate, and disseminate knowledge solutions through learning and performance innovation for business and education. The center enables constituents and funding agencies to implement knowledge solutions for improving their organizational systems. I consult and teach in the areas of technological innovation, consulting skills, workforce education, and research methods. At the national level, I provide leadership in numerous professional organizations and serve as a reviewer and editor for numerous research publications. I have been a faculty member at the University of North Texas since 1994 and currently serve as a Professor in the Department of Learning Technologies. Denise and I have two sons and live in Aubrey, Texas.
