Professional Summary:

I am a classically trained gross anatomist with a specific interest in clinical anatomy. Although I received my PhD through the Interdisciplinary Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology at Ohio University, with a specific focus on skeletal muscle biology, my professional interest and focus since graduation has been in the teaching of the anatomical sciences, and in educational research and theory, in general. I am also involved in the development of anatomical models for teaching purposes and in research and documentation of anatomical variants identified during gross anatomy dissection.
Presently, I am one of the instructors for the ANA 500 gross anatomy course for the medical and dental students and serve as the coordinator for the dental section of the course. I also serve as course director for the ANA 407 gross anatomy course for OT, PT, and exercise science students.
My educational research interests involve the development and execution of a flipped classroom approach to teaching, with the replacement of traditional didactic lectures with facilitated active learning (FAL) sessions. The traditional university classroom, in which a content expert lectures and students take notes, dates back to the earliest universities and predates the printing press. This was therefore the most effective and efficient means by which to disseminate knowledge. Current technology makes this approach unnecessary, and allows instructors to explore other teaching approaches that may improve retention and help develop lifelong learning strategies. Pre-recorded lectures give students more control over the time and pace at which they view the didactic sessions. My classroom sessions are modelled after the Team Based Learning (TBL) paradigm and make use of the latest in audience response technology. I am also interested in the utilization of Open Educational Resources (OER) to deliver lessons to a wider population base without violating copyright restrictions.
