Bio

Associate Professor and Chair, The Polytechnic School,  Aviation Program

Dr. Mary Niemczyk is an Associate professor and Chair of the Aviation programs at Arizona State University. Before joining the Aviation faculty, Dr. Niemczyk earned her PhD in Learning & Instructional Technology at ASU. She has also worked as a financial analyst at a major US carrier and co-founded an aviation human performance company, which mostly focused on determining the best instructional methods for training pilots on technologically advanced aircraft. Additionally, Dr. Niemczyk is an FAA certified pilot.

Dr. Niemczyk’s research interests center on improving instructional and learning strategies to enhance the performance of individuals in complex, ill-defined environments, such as aviation. Her work also focuses on determining the best attributes, knowledge and skills that can lead to successful performance in aviation training and job performance. The results of her research have been widely published in peer-reviewed aviation and education journals.

 

As a faculty member at ASU, Dr. Niemczyk has taught 13 different aviation courses, and developed three new courses. Because of her background in learning and instruction, Dr. Niemczyk is often invited by University’s to conduct external reviews of their Aviation programs. She also serves as a Visiting Team Chair for the Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI), and is currently the president of the University Aviation Association (UAA).

In addition, Dr. Niemczyk founded Mastering Learning, which provides faculty and students resources to improve instruction and learning. One such resource is her handbook, Using Your Brain to Learn: Strategies for Success, as well as multiple workshops for faculty, students and parents.
