As a Teaching Assessment Fellow, I am supporting and assessing a teaching initiative that bridges conservation biology theory and practice. In this innovative course design, students design and implement a pilot study on a local urban conservation project. In my role, I will assess and evaluate student learning and present this data to inform future teaching practices.
As a Lead Teaching Fellow, I promoted the development of graduate student pedagogical practices. In addition, I acted as a liaison between my department and the Center for Teaching and Learning by organizing workshops and facilitating teaching development opportunities. In particular, I developed a resource for graduate students and advisors on mentorship in the sciences.
The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation's (CBC) NCEP develops biodiversity conservation capacity through training, teaching, and learning. As a part of the NCEP team, I assist in developing, managing, and updating lessons plans for the NCEP module database, which contains teaching and learning resources on a variety of conservation topics. In addition, I curate open access resources to accompany these modules.
