Josh Friedman

Josh Friedman is an educational psychologist writing, teaching, and playing around in NYC. He recently defended his PhD thesis in Fall '23 on how nonverbal communication synchrony between teachers and students during learning interactions impacts student learning and reasoning processes. He currently teaches psychology at Hunter College at the City University of New York, and is engaged in studies of attention in brain dynamics of students in classrooms. Most of his research revolves around understanding learning as a revolutionary socially cognitive activity, generally because going to camp told him that was so. Josh spent 5 years teaching English, Philosophy, and Leadership skills across 5 continents, and developing a socially active philosophical skills building curriculum for the Challenge Course at URJ Greene Family Camp in Texas, USA. If you are interested in playful reasoning, mindful living, and artful philosophy, Josh would love to talk to you. If you are able to listen to long rants about the mind and beauty and nature of reality, or want to play tag, hide-and-seek, or the next most interesting and awesome game the world just invented, you may want to talk to Josh! Beyond anything else, Josh is grateful for the knowledge, intensity, and love that goes into and comes out of Cornerstone every year, and can't wait to see what 2024 brings!
