In my research, I focus on strategies for teaching and learning that improve student performance in their college courses. I’ve looked at the use of rubrics for improving students’ writing, the relationship between statistics anxiety and performance in our statistics course, whether statistics anxiety is related to teacher/student rapport, and whether the “flipped” classroom format enhances student learning. Additionally, I’m very active in The Society for the Teaching of Psychology (Div. 2 of the APA). I’ve served on three STP presidential task forces, including the task force for Psychological Literacy, Statistical Literacy, and Skills Development of Psychology Students. I’ve been honored by the College of Arts and Science with the award for Excellence in Teaching by Clinical Faculty.
