How Can I Help

In my role as Assistant Director on the Educational Development team, my main focus is to provide support for and build community among graduate students and postdocs as they learn and grow into researchers who are also impactful educators of undergraduate (and graduate) students. That is, I guide the instructors of current and future college students as they learn how to implement research-based teaching.


Lisa Kuehne, PhD, joined the Center for Teaching and Learning in July 2022 as Assistant Director of Graduate Student and Postdoc Programs. At the CTL, Lisa leads workshops on evidence-based teaching methods and helps develop and implement programming for the Professional Development in Teaching program for graduate students and postdocs. She also co-teaches the Introduction to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) seminar where graduate students and post docs learn about research methods to assess the effectiveness of teaching methods.

Lisa provides individual consultations on a variety of topics in several STEM disciplines including psychological and brain sciences, engineering, mathematics, physics, earth and planetary sciences, and chemistry. Common consultation topics include helping instructors to design course materials, brainstorming ideas to address classroom challenges, providing feedback on classroom teaching observations, and guiding graduate students and post docs through professional development programs and in writing teaching philosophy statements.

Before joining the CTL, Lisa worked for more than fifteen years in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics here at Washington University in a variety of pedagogically-focused roles.
