    Mangala Tawde

    Hello All,

    It's been crazy last few days so am sorry to chime in a lil late but here is a little bit about myself. I teach Allied Health related courses such as Anatomy Physiology and Microbiology at Queensborough CC of City University of New York, a large urban University with high diversity. QCC is a minority serving institution with enrollment over 15000 students coming from all over the world. I also teach intro Biology for non-majors sometimes.

    I completed the 2008-09 Research Residency which I absolutely loved, that was the beginning of my career as educational researcher. I published my research project in JMBE and continued to publish elsewehere. These days most I get to read is either DBER related articles or my college assessment assignments! Lol
