Faculty Overview

Dr. Nammouz’s research and teaching interests relate to studying how students learn and applying research-based teaching methodologies to develop introductory science courses for nonscience majors. Dr. Nammouz developed and implemented a series of science classes for nonscience majors that reinforced the interconnection among scientific concepts. Her introductory courses range from physical sciences to environmental science and sustainability. Her main pedagogical goal is to incorporate global learning into college classes through virtual exchange models to assist students in seeing the connections between their studies and the world outside the classroom. Dr. Nammouz served as a Global Learning Institute Faculty Fellow to support the Clemson University International Virtual Exchange -IVE- initiatives. She is also one of a group of EEES faculty who teach Environmental Science and Policy (ENSP 2000).
