Dr. Andrew Bulla is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Georgia Southern University, and also serves as the university’s Verified Course Sequence (VCS) coordinator for the Behavior Analyst Certification Board’s (BACB) course sequence at the university. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Saint Joseph’s University in psychology with a minor in autism studies. Upon graduating, he completed his Master’s and Doctoral degrees in behavior analysis from Western Michigan University. Dr. Bulla has worked at a variety of organizations over the course of his career including residential, center-based, and after-school programs, as well as both public and private schools for students with and without disabilities. He has worked in autism early intervention, ancillary programs including social and recreational skills, the assessment and treatment of challenging behaviors, and academic interventions for students with and without disabilities. Dr. Bulla also currently assists with Morningside Academy’s Summer School Institute, a summer program that trains teachers, school administrators, scholars, and students from all over the world on how to implement the Morningside Model of Generative Instruction. Dr. Bulla has taught a variety of college level courses in the areas of Applied Behavior Analysis, Autism, Introduction to Psychology, Research Methods, Educational Psychology, Behavior Assessment, and Advanced Behavior Change Systems and Techniques. He believes that it is an honor and a privilege to be a part of someone’s education. In alignment with this view, he tries channel the words of Zig Engelmann and Ogden Lindsley: “If the student hasn’t learned, the teacher hasn’t taught,” and that “The student is always right.” Dr. Bulla has published papers in the areas of self-management and class-wide approaches to behavior management. His current research interests focus on behavioral approaches to education and schooling. More specifically, he has an interest in precision teaching, instructional design, direct instruction strategies, and behavior management in school settings.
