How Can I Help

I’m here to support instructors in achieving their teaching goals and in addressing teaching challenges. I work primarily with STEM postdocs and graduate students across a wide range of topics including active learning activities, effective group work, inclusive practices, and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. I enjoy helping both instructors and students be reflective in their teaching and learning practices.


Lisa Kuehne, PhD, joined the Center for Teaching and Learning in July 2022 as Assistant Director of Educational Development. 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. Lisa earned her PhD in Mathematics from Washington University in 2021.
