Mink has co-authored and published numerous articles that explore the practice and impact of hands-on teaching and learning.  His particular interests include experiential instructional design in professional development for in-service educators.  These pieces are generally focused on practice rather than research – and the narrative impact of immersive training projects on teacher attitude, aptitude, and application to practice.
