As the Science Education Specialist in the Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) department at the University of British Columbia, I collaborate with faculty to incorporate evidence-based educational strategies in their courses. I conduct classroom observations, give feedback to instructors, measuresstudent learning and course experiences via surveys and other assessments, and help to provide a teaching development experience. Current areas of development include investigating the potential benefits of pairing new and experienced instructors as a way of transferring best practices in teaching, assessing the spatial visualization skills of undergraduate students in EOAS, and helping to map the curriculum in EOAS.
