Research and Scholarly Activity:

Ms. Lewis’ focus area is educational technology and online learning as it relates to Social Work curriculum. This interest led her to seek graduate level education in online education through the MU School of Information Science & Learning Technologies (SISLT). In 2014, she earned a Graduate Certificate in Online Education. To further enhance her knowledge and skills in this area, she earned an Educational Specialist degree (EdS) with an emphasis in Educational Technology.

In particular, Ms. Lewis is interested in ways to enhance student learning in the online environment. She is fascinated with the research on this topic and finds ways to integrate the research into her teaching. She received an award from the Mizzou ET@MO Teaching with Technology Innovative Fund (TTIF) to incorporate a digital lesson creator program into her course lessons. She utilizes this program with media, written content, and self-check activities including "quiz poppers" for her classes.

Ms. Lewis is also interested in ways to incorporate active learning into the online classroom. By incorporating activities within the course lesson, her hope is that students will feel more active and engaged in their learning. Through self-check activities, students have the opportunity to evaluate their own learning for course lesson content.
