Overview

About

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. 



Teaching

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.
