CISGS and Integrative Biology Position

I am excited to announce that I just started a new position at Michigan State University! My new position is at the Center for Integrative Studies in General Science (CISGS) and Integrative Biology. As an Academic Specialist, my appointment is teaching focused. I will primarily be teaching two non-science major courses:

  • ISB 202, Applications of Environmental and Organismal Biology, and
  • ISB 204, Applications of Biomedical Sciences

I am joining a team that highly encourages a student-centered classroom and I will continue teaching a “flipped” class that allows for class time to primarily consist on student team activities. The CISGS Learning Goals focus on learning science via scientific practices.

Not only am I happy to be a member of the CISGS and Integrative Biology teams but also continuing to be a part of Michigan State University, which provides ample professional development opportunities!

Early View of JRST Manuscript

I am excited to announce that after much hard work, my dissertation research is being published in JRST, Journal of Research in Science Teaching (impact factor: 3.052).  The early view of the article, To what extent does current research and textbook content align? A methodology and case study, is available. Dr. Renee’ Schwartz and Dr. Sharon Gill, the co-authors, were on my dissertation committee, along with Dr. Brandy Ann-Skjold Pleasants. For more information on my dissertation research, click here and then click on “Textbook and Primary Literature Alignment.”
