Frank Linton completed his Ed.D. at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His patented dissertation work in intelligent tutoring systems combined artificial intelligence and learning environments. He continued this research at The MITRE Corporation, a not-for-profit systems engineering company serving the Federal Government (FFRDC). While there, he broadened his research to include recommender systems for adult learners, a line of inquiry begun earlier at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, and he has numerous publications on these topics.
Earlier, Frank taught math and science courses at Lesley University’s School of Management, in Cambridge MA, and English in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He also worked in instructional design / course development for companies in the Boston area who sometimes sent him to Asia and the Middle East.
Frank’s interest in data and technology for beekeeping led him to current work in the Center for Analytics Research and Education (CARE), where he is an Affiliate Research Professor. He is an EAS-certified master beekeeper, author of The Observation Hive Handbook, and promoter of colony monitoring technologies on his website, in articles, at conferences, and in graduate students’ engineering projects.
