What is your field of study? Why did you choose it?
My Ph.D. is in Instruction and Curriculum with a focus on Research in Teaching and Teacher Education. Within that broad field, my main areas of interest and study are cultural competence and teaching for social justice. I have taught a wide range of courses and consider myself a teacher education generalist. I chose this field because I am passionate about pedagogy and its effect on learners. I wanted to understand more in depth how people learn in ways that are active, meaningful, relevant, and memorable.

People are affected by environmental changes. For example, climate warming may lead to more carbon dioxide emissions from Arctic soils to the atmosphere, leading to greater warming, leading to an increase in mosquitoes and a greater risk of diseases carried by mosquitoes for people and wildlife.
“That means that as a society, we need to include these complex interactions across ecological systems in our planning to ensure we can ‘live with’ the conditions we create,” explains Assistant Professor of Biology Heidi Steltzer, recipient of the 2013 New Faculty Award.
