The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning enthusiastically announces the three Graduate Assistants on our staff for the 2013-2014 academic year. Graduate Assistants in the Center assist in the administration of the Certificate in University Teaching Skills (CUTS) program, conduct research on teaching and learning topics, consult with graduate students about teaching, and assist Center staff with the implementation and assessment of programs.
Each of our GAs this year is hard-working and committed to the mission of the center, and each brings her and his own teaching experiences and pedagogical knowledge.
Returning for a second year as a GA in the Center, Erin Solomon is currently finishing a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology, with a concentration in Social Psychology. Erin has taught several courses in the Psychology Department including General Psychology and Foundations of Research Methods and Statistics. She has also taught Psychology courses online for the School for Professional Studies.
Joining us for his first year, Jacob Van Sickle is a Ph.D. Candidate in Historical Theology in the Department of Theological Studies, focusing on early Greek and Byzantine Christianity. His passion for religious education at all levels will be fostered as he develops his pedagogical knowledge through his experiences in the Reinert Center.
Also a new Graduate Assistant to the Reinert Center, Elisabeth Hedrick-Moser will complete a doctorate degree in English, with a concentration in Transatlantic Modernism and Trauma Theory. She has taught several courses in the English Department, from Advanced Strategies in Rhetoric and Research to Women in Literature. She also earned a graduate minor in Women’s and Gender Studies and has taught Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies at the Frost campus as well as Feminism in Action at the Madrid campus.
We look forward to the contributions that Erin, Jacob, and Elisabeth bring to all those the Reinert Center serves this year.
