Scott Henkle

Assistant Director, Learning Experience Design


Scott’s nearly 20 years as a teacher of writing and literature led him to a career working to improve educational experiences and outcomes for all students. In his time at NYU he has been involved in everything from large-scale University-wide projects to the development of day-to-day classroom engagement strategies. Prior to joining NYU he designed courses for faculty seeking to enrich their online classrooms with improved pedagogy. He is particularly interested in centering the student in the classroom, how authentic assessment can lead to learning, and how online spaces can create an evolving potential for collaboration. Scott has an MFA in fiction writing from the University of Washington and a long-standing research interest in the relationship between creativity and learning.
