Russell Korte is an Associate Professor of Human and Organizational Learning at The George Washington University. Korte studies the socio-cultural systems in the professions and organizations, along with the effects of these systems on learning and performance in school, business, and industry. This work specifically focuses on the professional socialization of engineering students, faculty, practicing engineers, medical students, as well as the entrepreneurial efforts of innovators to change organizations. Prior to GWU, Korte was at Colorado State University. Before that, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign he helped design and implement an innovative first year engineering program. Additional research interests include theory, philosophy, social science, workplace learning and performance, entrepreneurship, socialization, professional education, and organization studies.
