Kristin JankeProfessor, Pharmaceutical Care & Health Systems
Areas of expertise in education related innovation and scholarship: I am an active SOTL advocate, encouraging all pharmacy faculty to systematically observe the effects of innovations and to consider dissemination of key findings. I regularly partner with teams of faculty to help in the development of an evaluation plan for new teaching and learning initiatives. In my own work, I am particularly interested in innovative forms of student learning assessment and advancing curricular-level assessments. A good portion of my scholarship is related to methods for Student Leadership Development (SLD) and SLD-related assessments.

Gardner Lepp, Ph.D.

Gardner Lepp, Ph.D.Adjunct Associate Professor and Education Specialist

Areas of expertise in education related innovation and scholarship: My primary interest lies in understanding which factors contribute to the most efficient, effective educational opportunities, particularly in non-traditional learning environments -- extra-curricular, co-curricular, experiential settings, etc. -- because these settings can offer personalized and transformative learning experiences.  Other areas of scholarly interest include identity formation and faculty teaching development.
