Name of creator
Paul Herzberg is Professor Emeritus and Senior Scholar at York University. He was born on 23 September 1936 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and educated at Queen's University (B.A., Physics and Mathematics, 1958), Princeton University (A.M., Physics, 1961), and the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana (Ph.D., Psychology, 1967). Herzberg joined York University in 1966 and served in various teaching and administrative capacities. His teaching and research have focussed on statistics, including studies of the development of visual techniques, simulations of statistical phenomena, geometrical interpretations of multivariate statistics, etc.; notably, he developed a psychology statistics course with Professor Ron Sheese using the Keller Plan of teaching, which Herzberg taught and refined at York University for over 25 years. With the Keller Plan, students must master, to 80 per cent, each of the course modules before advancing to the next, and complete the required quizzes at their own pace. Herzberg was recognized for his exemplary teaching skills in 1996 when he was awarded the Parents' Association University Wide-Teaching Award.
