I have been part of the Augustana community since 2013. I took the position of Biology Lab Coordinator in 2015 and am excited to be part of a community that focuses on a rounded education for undergraduate students.
My role as Biology Lab Coordinator is to offer students an enriching and investigative lab experience in the biology science foundations lab course (AUSCI 115). I provide a learner-centered approach and ensure that students are given a respectful, safe, and supportive learning environment. In this space, students develop technical skills, work in a collaborative environment, and practice critical thinking and effective communication. I give the student teams ongoing opportunities to improve on these skills through weekly problem-solving and designing experiments. Ultimately, by providing students with a supportive learning environment and an enthusiastic, passionate teacher, I aim to engage students in science.
