Envisioning a New Drexel Teaching and Learning Center

Johanna Inman Named Director of Drexel's New Teaching and Learning Center

 We are pleased to announce that Johanna Inman has been named the inaugural Director of the Teaching and Learning Center at Drexel University. 

Office: Hagerty Library Room L-25
Phone: 215-895-6335

Inman served as Director of Instructional Technology, and previously as Assistant Director, for Temple University’s Center for the Advancement of Teaching. Inman brings significant experience in several areas critical to launching a new teaching and learning center, including creating and facilitating a wide range of events and programs, mentoring faculty from disciplines and ranks across Temple’s seventeen schools and colleges, and coordinating and managing a 6-credit Teaching in Higher Education Certificate. Inman is also an active member of the Professional and Organizational Development (POD) Network and has presented extensively at both regional and national conferences on teaching in higher education.

In addition to her work in educational development, Inman brings over 18 years of teaching experience. She has taught a variety of courses including survey, studio, and capstone courses in the visual arts, as well as writing-intensive courses, first-year seminars and general education courses. For the last six years, she has taught an online graduate seminar on innovation, technology and teaching in higher education for the College of Education at Temple University. Johanna earned her M.F.A., summa cum laude, from Tyler School of Art, is the recipient of numerous artist grants and awards, including a New Jersey Council on the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship Award in 2015 and is on track to earn her doctoral degree in Higher Education early in 2020.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead such an important initiative at Drexel University,” says Inman. “I am passionate about teaching and look forward to continuing momentum for this center through collaborations with faculty, graduate students, and administrators. Together, we will create a dynamic center where interdisciplinary colleagues can engage with research on teaching to improve learning for all Drexel students. The center will be designed to empower and ignite the great teachers at Drexel to become even better.”

As inaugural director, Inman will complete the strategic envisioning process for the center which began in 2017. Her first steps will include completing a comprehensive needs assessment, proposing a staffing plan for the center, developing a range of programming for faculty and teaching assistants, establishing a faculty advisory board, and forging partnerships with institutional stakeholders.
