In just 21 months she created a wide variety of initiatives including learning circles, guest speakers, active classrooms and mentoring programs to name but a few. Furthermore, she has helped establish the four pillars of C-TEL (assessment, community engagement, diversity, and technology) as essential elements for excellence in teaching at Washburn.
