Stephanie Foote

Stephanie Foote
Kennesaw State University

Dr. Stephanie Foote is a dedicated instructor who draws on her own research and the latest advances in the emergent discipline of First-Year Studies to provide students with the tools necessary for success in the educational environment. She engages students through collaboration and active interdisciplinary inquiry and discourse- a technique that is mirrored in the approach she takes in her research and practice. The resulting pedagogies of this focus have been integrated into the classes she teaches, and many have been adopted by other faculty who teach the first-year seminar courses in the department and at other institutions. Dr. Foote involves students in projects and assignments that help them develop the tools to succeed in college while also honing their ability to work as part of a team, develop research skills at the level expected of undergraduate students, and gain experience in making presentations in a public forum - all tools they must master to be successful students. Experiential exercises engage the students and encourage them to apply the ideas and concepts learned in class. She has been meticulous in keeping up with ever evolving face of education - Dr. Foote has embraced the online course model and her willingness to adapt and revise to meet the needs of online learners as well as utilizing the power of social media by incorporating it into her classes. She strives to create an environment where students will think more deeply, and ultimately, more critically. Through relentless dedication to research and a solid foundation in active and engaging teaching and learning, Dr. Foote has proved to be an educator of excellence.
