Bell Named Fellow

Associate Professor Bradford Bell has been named a fellow by the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
Bell’s research and writing has expanded the literatures on training and development,
and on team effectiveness, according to the organization.

“His theoretical and empirical work in training has helped to provide insight into the cognitive, motivational and emotional processes that underlie active learning, the training design elements that can be used to shape these processes, and the role of individual differences in influencing how trainees interact with active learning interventions,” according to the society.

The “fellow” designation, the group said, is for individuals who have “enriched or advanced the field on a scale well beyond that of being a good researcher, practitioner, teacher, or supervisor. Not only must the contribution and/or performance be outstanding, it must also have had impact that is recognized broadly in the U.S. and/or internationally.”

Bell, who has published 41 articles and book chapters, teaches courses in human resource management, training and development, and work groups and teams to graduate and undergraduate students.

Director of ILR Executive Education and editor of Personnel Psychology, Bell has been recognized for his research through awards including the Early Career Achievement Award from the HR Division of the Academy of Management and an Emerald Management Reviews’ Citation of Excellence.
