Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Hello! I am Dr. Cristina Cottom and I am the Research Specialist for the Rothwell Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide. I have diverse experience as an educator, advisor, and college instructor. My strengths include teacher education, online course development, integration of research-based teaching and learning, active learning strategies, and collaborative learning environments. As a teacher, I have integrated research-based teaching and learning into several courses. In my role as the Research Specialist, I support faculty members with active learning strategies related to research skills, assessing student proficiency in research, best teaching practices, as well as support research initiatives. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, cooking, playing the piano, and visiting the beach.
