Carolyn Hoessler (Ph.D. Queen's University) joined the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness in June 2012 as a Program and Curriculum Development Specialist. As part of the Curriculum Innovation team, her focus is on teaching and learning in higher education, assessment, program evaluation, graduate student development, and mentorship. In supporting individuals, programs, and departments, she draws on her background in quantitative statistical and mixed-method research in both education and psychology. Her research interests encompass contextual, social, interpersonal, and motivational influences shaping educational and professional development experiences. Her doctoral research examines support for graduate students’ teaching across the multi-layered context in which they learn and teach.
Prior to coming to the University of Saskatchewan, Carolyn worked as an Educational Development Associate at the Centre for Teaching and Learning at Queen’s University during her PhD in Education, and as a Teaching Assistant Associate at Wilfrid Laurier University’s Educational Development Office while completing a Master’s degree in Psychology.
