STEM education consulting services are available on projects of any size, from the development of a single module for a course to the development of a new curriculum and from the assessment of a single faculty member’s teaching to the evaluation of an entire department. If you are interested in discussing a project or have questions, please contact me.


Currently, I am working on the following projects:

  • Working with a biology department to introduce faculty to evidence-based course design and teaching strategies and to revise their mid-level biology curriculum
  • Developing a course on Undergraduate Research Support and Training for the Computing Research Association and the UR2PHD program with the goal of increasing female participation in computer science PhD programs
  • Mentoring a postdoc at CU Boulder in the teaching of an anatomy and physiology course for biomedical engineers

Below are sample projects that I have worked on previously as a faculty member.
