(970) 351-3076

Rob Reinsvold teaches in the School of Biological Sciences.  He earned his Ph.D. from Purdue University, MS from Colorado State University and 2 BAs from Humboldt State University.  With over 30 years teaching in higher education (UNC, Kalamazoo College, Purdue, and CSU), he has experienced a vast diversity of learning situations from large lecture sections to small graduate seminars, from face-to-face courses to on-line courses, from hands-on lab courses to information-rich lecture courses, and from in-class discussions to field-based ecology courses.  Although his professional expertise is in fungal ecology, he has developed a strong interest in bioeducation.  In particular, he is interested in the misconceptions many students bring to our classrooms, especially related to their understanding of plants, and how students learn complex linear concepts such as life cycles, biochemical processes, or nutrient cycles.  He also is interested in the efficacy of different instructional strategies in different learning environments.  As a CETL Faculty Fellow he hopes to help foster opportunities for colleagues in NHS and the university to develop their scholarship in teaching and learning.
