About the Facilitator:

She has over twenty years experience in postsecondary education, and has taught in a wide range of classroom, community-based and online environments - large and small, introductory and advanced level. She has won two student-nominated teaching awards while at PSU, and has presented widely on engaging students in deep and sustained learning. Her current research includes pedagogical assumptions and student learning experiences in partially online courses, the role of academic portfolios in faculty scholarship and professional development, and perceptions of scholarship in the context of institutional change.
 
Our events are inclusive, and all are welcome. Smith Memorial Student Union is ADA accessible, with gender neutral restrooms. If you have additional accessibility requests, please reach out to Mike Millard at oai@pdx.edu prior to the event and we will do our best to accommodate them.
