Investigating Teaching & Learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic

My colleagues (Siddiq Khan, Alecia Carolli, and Lillian Park) and I conducted this study to gain insight into students’ experiences of emergency remote delivery, and how to best support their learning during the this shift in course instruction. Our results highlight the importance of: 1) implementing active learning strategies to promote student engagement when courses are delivered remotely; 2) delivering course content in a clear and organized way; 3) providing students with multiple forms of learning resources.

Introducing Teaching and Learning Research (TLR) In Action

About half a year ago I started a non-profit corporation called Teaching and Learning Research In Action (TLR for short). Our mission statement: “We investigate the efficacy of teaching practices and make our findings public, particularly through non-traditional forms of dissemination”. Today we had our first group meeting. Here is some footage of our group discussing what excites us most about TLR. For more information about TLR please visit our website:

Pop-up Poetry at the 2019 Symposium on SoTL

Pop-up poetry is definitely one of the highlights of the annual Symposium on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) for me. I was guided through an insightful, reflective process on student partnerships by Richard Harrison, resulting in ‘Evolution’ (the poem in the photo above). I’m very grateful to the Institute for SoTL and the organizers of the Symposium on SoTL for such an amazing symposium.
