Stephanie Marin Rothman has been teaching as a Lecturer since 2011. She currently teaches online Life Science and Human Sexuality, and has been teaching online since 2014. Her current research interest involves using qualitative methods to explore how active learning and inclusive teaching practices can be used to close achievement gaps for students of historically underrepresented backgrounds in science courses.
In Marin Rothman’s thirteen years of college teaching, she has always prioritized creating relevant and engaging courses that serve the diverse population of her students. Her philosophy of teaching is based on the theory of constructivism, where she creates classes that value students’ perspectives, experiences, and cultures. She recently conducted a self-study, examining her instruction through a critical researcher lens, and she will continue to reflect on and improve her teaching and research throughout her career.
Marin Rothman is focusing her energy on improving science education for all, inspiring the next generation to work towards making the world a better place. Her goal as a teacher-scholar is to make science education inclusive and accessible to all students from a wide diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. Her research and teaching methods utilize student-centered strategies such as active learning, inclusivity, and accessibility to reach every single student.
