Joseph A. Raelin, Ph.D. 1977

Joseph A. Raelin, Ph.D. 1977, was appointed in October 2002 to lead Northeastern University’s new Center for the Study of Practice-Oriented Education and will hold the Asa S. Knowles Chair in this field. The center will conduct research on learning that occurs in work-based settings through internships, community service and experiential, or action, learning. It will also examine Northeastern’s cooperative learning, or co-op, program that allows students to alternate classroom study with six-month periods of paid professional employment related to their major.

Previously a professor at Boston College’s Wallace E. Carroll School of Management, Raelin brings more than 25 years of experience to his new position. He and center staff members will embark on a research program to uncover the core elements of practice-oriented learning.

Raelin is the author of numerous books, including Work-Based Learning: The New Frontier of Management Development and Creating Leaderful Organizations: How to Bring Out Leadership In Everyone. He resides in Needham, MA.
