Teaching & Learning

The Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL) provides resources for all aspects of education at Mailman, from initial course inception through instructional design, teaching practice, and student assessment. OTL offers a variety of consultation services for faculty, encouraging use of best practices and supporting our vision of a truly exceptional public health learning environment.

In Leah Hooper's capacity as Senior Director of Educational Initiatives, she provides guidance on evidence-based curricular design, instructional practice, assessment, and evaluation. Leah currently develops and leads faculty workshops and consults with school leadership on best practices in teaching and learning. She particularly enjoys identifying program- and school-wide opportunities to implement innovative pedagogies, such as computerized simulations, and has recently organized resources to help faculty and administrators build a more inclusive learning environment by recognizing and addressing microaggressions in the school culture. Her areas of interest include using research-based instructional design in distance-based programs and supporting the effective use of technologies to enhance student learning.
