Raymond Dixon, Department Chair of Curriculum and Instruction at Idaho State University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in curriculum development and engineering research.
Since 2018, Dr. Dixon has provided superior education as associate professor and department chair at the College of Education at the University of Idaho in Moscow, teaching engineering and technology education in the CTE program. Since 2011, he has prospered as a principal investigator for the university in workforce development, technology and engineering. Prior to joining the University of Idaho, Dr. Dixon excelled as a research associate at the Center for Mathematics, Science and Technology (CeMaST), Illinois State University.
After Dr. Dixon initially obtained a bachelor’s degree in education, with honors, and a minor in industrial technology from the University of Technology in Kingston, Jamaica, in 2001, he followed with a master’s degree in technology, project management, training and development from Illinois State University in 2004. He continued his education with a Doctor of Philosophy in human resource development with a minor in engineering and technology education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010.
In his homeland of Jamaica, Dr. Dixon has taught in high school, worked in industry, and served at various levels in education ranging from instructor and head of department to deputy manager, and technical coordinator. He was honored as the Instructor of the Year for the National Tool and Engineering Institute in 2000 by the National Training Agency of Jamaica and lectured for three years at the School of Technical and Vocational Education at the University of Technology in Jamaica.
Dr. Dixon attributes his success to giving importance to what he does and his willingness to advocate it. After finding his work in Jamaica to be “too monotonous and not very rewarding,” he realized that he found it very rewarding when he trains or helps someone learn something new. Thus, he shifted to a career in education and curriculum development became one of his specializations. In the coming years, Dr. Dixon intends to produce more impactful research, and would like to attain a full professor position.
