Faith Liebl (Biology)

Faith Liebl is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences. She has taught Cell and Molecular Biology (BIOL 319), both as a traditional, primarily lecture course and as a flipped course. As a flipped course, students are expected to view the lectures outside of class to enable them to discuss the material and solve related problems during class time. Faith will discuss the challenges of keeping a large number of students on task and provide ideas for structuring class time with problems and activities. 

Katie Poole-Jones (Art History)

Katherine Poole-Jones is Assistant Professor of Art History. She has taught ART 225B (History of Western Art: Renaissance to the Present) as a fully online course for the past three summers, and has witnessed how this foray into online instructional design has informed – and improved! – her face-to-face class teaching, which now incorporates numerous online tools.

Sarah VanSlette (Applied Communication Studies)

Sarah VanSlette is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Communication Studies. She has taught Public Relations (SPC/ACS 213) and Social Media for Public Relations (SPC/ACS 432) online.
