Pablo Tinio Joins EECE

            The faculty and staff of the Queens College Division of Education recognizes Pablo Tinio as its new faculty member in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. With his background in education paired with his recent award from the Division 10 of the American Psychological Association, the Society for the Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts, Tinio contributes to the DOE’s mission in preparing compassionate and knowledgeable professionals to work in diverse urban settings.

            Born in the Philippines and raised in Guam, Tinio was exposed to the education profession with the help of his parents. “Both my parents started off as teachers. I remember, hanging out in my mother’s elementary school classroom. I wanted to help children see the world in a different way. That’s why I started in aesthetics,” says Tinio. He went on to receive his doctoral degree from the University of Vienna, Department of Psychology and holds an Masters of Arts  in Educational Psychology: Learning, Cognition, and Development from Rutgers University, Graduate School of Education and  a Masters of Arts in Behavioral Science from Kean University. The award from the APA Division 10 was given for his outstanding work as a young researcher. Tinio’s has published his work in leading peer-reviewed journals, and he has also contributed to many books on psychology and education.

             As a new faculty member for the DOE, Tinio expressed his respect for the DOE and what attracted him to QC. “Quite a few things attracted me to QC. It’s tight connection to the community, the diversity of the students and faculty. The DOE as a whole is committed to art and aesthetics education,” proclaims Tinio.  Looking back on his first semester at QC, which officially began in September 2010, Tinio reflects on the challenges he faced as a new teacher and how his colleagues helped with his adjustment. “I faced a lot my first semester, but the faculty was so supportive, the DOE has something like a mentorship system.”

             Tinio continues to look towards the future of education with a positive focus on his work in arts and aesthetics education. “I want to push my research more towards looking at the benefits of  engagement in the arts; what it does in itself in addition to what it can do for other subjects. I truly believe there is a lot that children can learn from aesthetics and art. This can help with teacher education and contribute to education in general.”
