Changes in practice, whether job performance, clinical practices, or teaching methods with students, require more than superficial adjustments. Deep change in practice requires learning that is transformational. Dr. Kammer has focused her own learning on what it takes to transform practice. A core ingredient to deep learning is challenging ideas, using evidence, and improving reasoning skills through critical thinking.
Learning in Education
Dr. Kammer is an associate of Flip It Consulting as she provides workshops and faculty coaching for universities interested in transformative change to an active, learning-centered environment. This change requires commitment toward a major culture shift away from lecture style curriculum to active learning (Flipped) strategies that engage students in critical thinking. Chapman University is an example of a transformative program as its School of Pharmacy collaborates with Flip It to create an active learning culture.
Learning in Business
Dr. Kammer is collaborating with Open Advance to help businesses develop into learning organizations. This transformation occurs through the design of significant learning experiences that lead to deep learning, retention of concepts and knowledge, and improved problem-solving skills.
