Samantha Daley holds appointments across three program areas at Warner: teaching & curriculum, counseling & human development, and educational policy. This reflects both her and the School’s attention to her areas of study—inclusion and disability—from a range of perspectives and in all aspects of human learning and flourishing. Daley also coordinates the Warner School’s Quantitative Consulting Services through which advanced doctoral students support peers in quantitative methods and analysis.
Daley’s research focuses on integrating effective instructional practices for diverse students into educational environments that foster a sense of belonging and positive views of oneself as a learner. With a particular focus on students identified with learning disabilities, her areas of interest include: autonomy-supportive instruction, self-efficacy, instructional influences on motivation, experiences of stigmatization, and Universal Design for Learning. Daley has received financial support from multiple sources, including the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Spencer Foundation, and the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation. Her work has been published in the Journal of Educational PsychologyLearning and Individual DifferencesMind, Brain, & EducationJournal of Postsecondary Education and DisabilityBritish Journal of Educational Technology, and in various edited books.
A former special education teacher and learning disabilities specialist, Daley previously served as the director of research at CAST, a nonprofit education research and development organization that works to improve education for all learners through innovative uses of modern multimedia technology and contemporary research in the learning sciences.
