Research Interests

Research Summary

Toxicology mentoring and diversity inclusion training program

This project has been recently funded by the National Institutes of Health, Innovative Programs to Enhance Research Training. It aims to offer a mentoring program to underrepresented college students and recruit them into the toxicology profession. Another specific aim of this project is to develop and deliver openly available online training modules that address toxicology core competencies. Toxicology is the science of characterizing the effects of poisons or toxicants on living organisms. It is an established profession in North America, however, the number of underrepresented groups in toxicology remains disappointingly low. The Toxicology Mentoring and Diversity Inclusion Training Program is addressing this problem. This is a multi-institutional project led by Iowa State University, Iowa and involving the Ohio State University, Ohio and Tuskegee University, Alabama.

Examining online learning experiences in collectivist cultures through the Community of Inquiry Framework

This research study investigates online facilitation strategies in collectivist cultures within the Community of Inquiry Framework of analysis. Even though much research using Community of Inquiry has been conducted, most of it has occurred in North American contexts of practice, which are defined by Hofstede as individualist cultures. This research study addresses this gap by looking at how the Community of Inquiry applies to collectivist cultures particularly evident in countries such as Portugal and other Portuguese-speaking countries. Over 400 online students attending the Portuguese Open University and ten online teachers participated in the data collection. Data are now being analyzed and reported. This project was part of my Faculty Professional Development Leave in Lisbon, Portugal.
