Joined the Huntington University faculty in 2015.

Dr. Rebekah (Becky) Benjamin teaches courses and oversees student research projects in the Psychology Department at Huntington University. She specializes in quantitative research, applied cognition, and development and currently focus her research in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Her specific interests in this field include AI in education, the integration of Christian faith in teaching and learning, student academic reading practices, and flipped learning.

In the classroom, Becky’s primary goal is to help students become lifelong learners with inquisitive minds, individuals who are curious about knowledge and the source of that knowledge. A graduate of a Christian liberal arts university, Becky also sees the value in showing students that a liberal arts education can help them develop a better understanding of the world and the human condition. She wants her students to see that all people are made in the image of God and are worth taking the time to understand. 

Originally from Anderson, Indiana, Becky currently lives in Huntington with her husband, Nathan, and their three children. Becky enjoys reading and spending time with her family, and she serves in various ways in her church.
