Robert M. Gagné Research Award

Robert Mills Gagné earned his Ph.D. from Brown University in 1940. Following an already distinguished career working with U.S. Air Force research laboratories, acting as director of research for the American Institutes of Research, and serving as a distinguished professor a the University of California at Berkley, in 1969 Gagné was recruited to FSU. He is the only faculty member in the College of Education (COE) to have served as president of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). He is only the second COE faculty member to have been named a Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor, the highest honor that the faculty can bestow on a colleague. His scholarly contributions elevated the reputation of his program, Instructional Systems, as well as the College and University. Gagné retired in 1985 but continued working and writing for almost 10 years. He died in 2002. This award honors his research legacy and the spirit of mentoring with which he worked with students and faculty colleagues.
