Teaching

At the 2017 Frontiers in Education (FIE) Conference, I published a paper about teaching assistants (TAs). The observations about the influence of TAs in the laboratory emerged from the laboratory equipment study that I conducted during my dissertation. Based on student comments during the original study, the TAs had an impact on the learning environment in the laboratory.   The full paper can be accessed in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

This year I completed my first teaching certificate through the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning at the University of Illinois.  Throughout the year, I attended seminars, collected feedback from my students, and had someone observe my teaching.  I wrote reflective essays on the entire process as well.  I learned a lot while completing the requirements of this certificate.  Many of the lessons I was able to apply right away as a teaching assistant, however other lessons I have made note of for future classes that I teach.
