My research focuses the scholarship of teaching and learning. One area of interest is on evaluating outcomes of faculty, resident, and graduate student teaching development programs. A second area of interest is on exploring the impact of curricular and course design, active learning strategies, and assessment methods on students’ knowledge, skill, and attitude development. A third area of interest is on the influence of doctor of pharmacy programmatic design and assessment on helping students attain program outcomes.
