I am currently not involved with research in a laboratory. However, I am very interested in ongoing research regarding innovations in pedagogy. I have been involved in the Biology Scholars Program, sponsored by the American Society for Microbiology. I was trained in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and began implementing research designed at examining the success of using interrupted case studies in a large lecture format. I also am assessing the use of technology in the classroom--personal response devices ("clickers"), online adaptive quizzes and, in the future, online narrated powerpoint lectures for introductory/foundational material in my courses.
