Teaching Interests

Although my appointment does not include regular teaching opportunities within a college or department, much of my previous background as a faculty member focused on curriculum and instructional development within the discipline of kinesiology.

Professional Interests

My recent readings have focused on a host of books I am trying to incorporate into my office work: Drive by Daniel Pink, The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, and A New Culture of Learning by Douglas Thomas and John Seely Brown.

Research Interests

My current research interests focus on framing CTL programs and services through the lens of principles from Made to Stick (Heath & Heath, 2008) and writing about our progress with a CTL colleague.
