North Carolina A & T State University

Dr. Gregory D. Goins is an Associate Professor of Environmental Biology at North Carolina A&T State University. His work aligns with the overall national goal to produce quality educational experiences for students interested in pursuing STEM careers.  Dr. Goins’ work shows clear evidence with regard to improving design, implementation, and assessment of courses and curricula.  At N.C. A&T, Dr. Goins teaches both introductory general biology for freshman students and capstone biology for senior students, where both courses show positive evidence of broad impact in science teaching and learning.  Dr. Goins is a founding leader in N.C. A&T’s successful re-shaping of Freshman Biology Orientation classes.  Much of the focus of Dr. Goins’ success in his courses is interrelated with active learning, collaborative learning strategies, and the creation of new ways students can problem solve. Dr. Goins demonstrate to his students that they can succeed in high-level, competitive research activities that are directly connected to their academic courses.
