James "Skip" Federici
During his business career, James earned his certificate in Human Performance Improvement from the American Society for Training & Development. In 2000, he became an FAA-certified airplane pilot (Single Engine – Land). After graduating with his MA, James continued his academic teaching career at Northwest Vista College where he taught survey courses in World History (I & II) and U.S. History (I & II). In 2008, he began his PhD work at The Ohio State University. His dissertation builds on several perspectives including adaptations to technological innovation, organizational responses to change, and the movement of innovations and organizational attitudes between Britain and the U.S. in the early years of the 20th century. The topic of pilot training programs in the Great War represents a unique contribution to the historiography of the conflict.
