Dr. Allison Baer – Education

3

Q: What is your name and the courses you teach?

A: Dr. Allison Baer, Associate Professor in the College of Education at The University of Findlay.
Q: What is something hands-on students are doing now?
I incorporate some kind of hands-on learning in all of my classes, whether it be group learning or individual making things. Then in The Clubhouse class that I teach that involves the UF students working with area children every week with one-on-one tutoring every week.

Q: Name a student you can see professional change in.
I see professional change in all of my students, because I’m very lucky. I get to see them their first year and then when they’re about to graduate. They go from these kind of a little unsure and a little nervous about university in general – they want to be a teacher but they really don’t know why, to at the time they take The Clubhouse class they’ve got this confidence and they just want to get out there into the schools. I see professional change in pretty much everyone that I teach, so I’m very lucky.

Q: What’s the best part about being an Oiler?
The best thing about being at The University of Findlay is the community we live in. The support of the other people – the administration, the faculty and the staff. Everybody is treated with dignity and respect.
