Katie Southard, Ph.D.

Director of Instructional Support

I have BS degrees in Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology and Biochemistry. My Ph.D. is in Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER), spanning Molecular and Cellular Biology and Science Education Research, with postdoctoral work focusing on instructor change and innovative instructional team models. My interest in General Education sparked from working closely with Gen Ed instructors in professional learning communities and partnering on education research projects in Gen Ed classrooms. My interest and investment in Gen Ed, particularly instructional support for Gen Ed instructors, has grown exponentially from there.
