Teaching Associate Professor, Biology
Kansas State University
Dr. Rhodes is featured in ACUE’s modules: Using Concept Maps and Other Visualization Tools and Using Student Achievement and Feedback to Improve Your Teaching.
As a multidisciplinarian, Rhodes teaches both introductory and senior-level Biology and Physiology courses at Kansas State University while simultaneously investigating the impacts different curricular methods have on learning and retention within these STEM subjects. Her research specifically focuses on methods to improve course experiences for low prior knowledge learners as well as students who are less likely to pursue and remain in STEM degree fields. In addition, Rhodes works with other educators in a variety of settings to help them improve their pedagogical approaches in ways that are most effective for their students.
