About Erin B Bruce
I am focused on teaching future scientists and health professionals all of the awesome things the human body can do. I am course director for multiple courses offered by the Physiology and Aging Department. While my expertise lies in cardiovascular physiology, I love to learn and teach every aspect of physiology. The human body is fascinating, and I hope that my students feel the same by the end of my courses.
I am dedicated to creating inclusive and equitable classrooms, whether in person or online. Nurturing diverse perspectives allows us all to create new knowledge in a space empathetic to one another’s lived experiences. I intend to support a learning environment that is respectful of diversity, including but not limited to: values, gender, sexuality, disability (seen or unseen), age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, race, religion, and culture. I appreciate any suggestions that may help create or support this initiative. I am always open to constructive feedback, whether about a more equitable classroom, or content and instruction style.
I am interested in educational research, especially as it relates to teaching Physiology. I am invested in using the latest pedagogical studies to influence my course organization and education style. In turn, I am working to inform my community of what techniques have benefited my classes, as well as identifying areas where my peers and I can improve. The more we share with each other, the better we all become.
