Teaching & Learning in Higher Education

Creating and sustaining engaging and supportive learning environments is critical in today’s higher education landscape. My research interests in the scholarship of teaching and learning are centered on the constructivist approach in higher education. I’m interested in exploring best practices in teaching strategies and assessment, investigating their impact on student learning.

Student Affairs Professional Development

I’m interested in the ways in which student affairs professionals engage in professional learning. What are the required professional competencies for student affairs practitioners and what forms of professional development are most effective?

curriculum

Curriculum & Instructional Design

Higher education has traditionally focused on the content and process of learning rather than on its outcomes. I’m interested in exploring the advantages of outcome-based curricula in HE, investigating how learning is supported by a student-centered approach to curriculum design. Additionally, I am interested in online course design that leverages technology to enhance the learning environment.
