IMPORTANT: Kindly note that many of the learning/instructional design materials I have produced over the years belong to my past and current employers and therefore cannot be showcased in this portfolio. Please contact me to learn more about my extensive experience developing learning materials in diverse formats. Other works and publications are displayed below.
This publication was a collaboration with K. Gull and L. Brancaccio-Taras while I coordinated the Science Teaching Fellows (STF) program at the American Society for Microbiology in Washington, DC. My role in this publication was to provide data for this study.
The STF program consisted of a series of six webinars, including pre and post-webinar assignments. Additionally, fellows were part of a community of practice with mentors and peers.
As coordinator, I participated in developing the STF program for early career biologists and postdoctoral students. This online course explored student-centered teaching to develop the skills needed to succeed in positions with a significant teaching component.
In a survey used to assess the impact of the STF program, participants reported greater knowledge of the webinar-based instructional topics and a sense of being part of an educational community and were more confident about varied teaching methods.

However, the hot and humid tropical weather combined with limited access to clean water and sanitation services, constitute an ideal ecosystem for the spread of vector-borne diseases.
