Research Interests / Professional Overview:

Since 2005, I have studied outcomes and perceptions in competency-based courses that I teach or supervise.  These investigations often involve collaborations with pre and postdoctoral students and faculty colleagues. The research has guided instructional decisions and curricular changes in our educational program.

Areas of inquiry include:
  • Competency-based education
  • Evidence-based Practice
  • Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
  • Instructor/grader-Standardization/Calibration
  • Reliability
  • Achievement Outcomes (Competency assessments)
  • Affective Outcomes (Course Evaluations)
