Background

Pamela is UC's Director of the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning (CET&L) and is an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of History in the McMicken College of Arts & Sciences.She began her career at the University of Illinois at Chicago helping to create and design a program for preparing future faculty and then moved on to the Center for First Year Experience at UC, where she worked closely with faculty to promote strategies that engage students and promote enhanced learning. Over the past decade, she has pursued teaching and learning both in and outside of the classroom, applying what she has learned from her experiences in a variety of contexts. Her own teaching style relies heavily on active and experiential learning techniques. Her primary strategy is to get students excited about history through the study of primary source documents in order to encourage them in developing their own interpretations about the past. Dr. Baker is in the process of completing an article for The History Teacher which explores ways to engage non-history majors in historical research at the undergraduate level. She is also working on a document reader for use in undergraduate courses that explores overland migrations during the early American republic.
