TBLC Steering Committee
Candidates for 2018

The Nominating Committee is pleased to present its slate of candidates for this year's election to the TBLC Steering Committee. In accordance with our bylaws, these are being posted to our website in alphabetical order. 

Although selection by the Nominating Committee is our formal system for identifying appropriate candidates, any TBLC member in good standing may petition to have his/her name added to this ballot by the mechanism described in our bylaws under Article VIII.

Members of TBLC are asked to review the candidates' qualifications listed below, and to thoughtfully consider the course each would take to achieve our Goals as discussed in their Personal Statement. On May 1, 2018 the electronic ballot will be activated and voting instructions will be provided at that time.

Also note, this page presents the qualifications and personal statement of each candidate only as submitted by the candidate. This is NOT the actual ballot.

When I first started using TBL, the TBLC was an invaluable resource of information, training, and most importantly, knowledgeable and helpful colleagues. It has been my great pleasure to be involved with this organization since 2010 and to have had many opportunities to contribute to our success. In 2013, I graduated from the Consultant-Trainer program and since then have successfully mentored five others to achieve their certificates. The skills I learned have been a great help to me guiding others in TBL at my own institution and extramurally. I co-facilitate workshops at our annual conference each year with an emphasis on peer evaluation, and have also co-facilitated regional, and pre-conference, TBL in a day workshops. I have served on the nominating and program planning committees, and on the steering committee as member-at-large for health sciences in 2015, and currently as the Treasurer and Chair of the Finance Committee. We have made great progress in the last two years, including funding major initiatives for expansion in Europe and Asia. I seek your support to continue our work for another two years.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Reading Education in the College of Education at the University of South Alabama. I currently teach undergraduate and graduate reading methods courses. I have been implementing team-based learning since 2014 and am a huge advocate for the use of this format in teacher education. I am interested in working with K-12 teachers to implement team-based learning or components of team-based learning in their classrooms.
