Teaching & Learning

I received Apple Teacher recognition in 2023. This program has allowed me to leverage the use of technology in my classrooms.

I received certification in Team-Based Learning Fundamentals in 2024. This program prepared me to effectively incorportate TBL in my courses and evaluate success through scholarship of teaching & learning.

I have taught lectures at the community college, undergraduate, and graduate levels covering a broad range of topics in neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology, and human anatomy.

Retroactive Analysis of New Pharmacology Minor Program

This project is a retroactive survey-based analysis of a newly created undergraduate pharmacology minor program that I served as the facilitator for, working with Dr. Rolf Craven in the Department of Pharmacology and Nutritional Science.  After a few years of implementing the minor program, our department wanted to gauge the effectiveness in three aspects: student attitudes, student evaluations of the coursework, student progress since completion of the minor.  I drafted and implemented an IRB-approved survey that included questions about professional development progress, content and utility evaluation of each course in the minor, and attitudes towards how well it prepared them for their current or desired positions. We have gained incredibly useful text-based comments in addition to the guided survey questions, and we are planning to submit a manuscript on this project for publication in mid-2024.
