Speaking & Workshops

With over twenty-five years as a teacher, a researcher, and academic administrator, I have seen and experienced the promises and the pitfalls of high-impact teaching and learning.

Whether labeled as experiential learningactive learning, project-based learning, community-based learning, or work-integrated learning, there are a variety of high-impact practices that have been shown to increase learner engagement and educational outcomes. But, like any methodology, these approaches can be misused, poorly designed, or ineffective in delivery.

I work with organizations, schools, colleges, and universities to sharpen and deepen teaching and learning practices, evaluate initiatives and programs, and facilitate strategic planning

Collaboration possibilities include:

• One-day or multi-day faculty/staff workshops on teaching and learning

• Conference keynote addresses

• Invited public talks or lectures on specific topics

• External reviews, assessments, evaluations, and quality enhancement projects for accreditation.

Contact me about a potential collaboration with your institution or organization.
