Eric Stoerm Anderson, Associate Teaching Professor

Eric Anderson has held administrative and faculty appointments at a number of universities. His most recent service prior to joining the ranks of the University of Washington-Bothell faculty was as a Research Coordinator for a large online university. Having been blessed with a daughter in 2015, he has decided to return to his first love: Teaching. Eric has played various roles in higher education settings throughout the world, has worked extensively with first generation university students in the United States, and has been involved in the evolution of online learning since the 1990s.


Eric’s scholarship has focused on graduate education and innovative curriculum development, design, and delivery across disciplines and professions. His research has included domestic and international work using qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods. His research expertise lies in narrative inquiry and related qualitative approaches, however the practical utility of quantitative methods often prove more compelling in terms of addressing immediate administrative and educational questions.
