Jeanne Frenzel, NDSU associate professor of pharmacypractice, is one of just five Emerging Teaching Scholars in the U.S. selected by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy.
Criteria for the national award include at least three scholarly works related to teaching and learning accepted in peer reviewed forums; serving as primary author or creator of at least two scholarly works related to teaching and learning; and no more than eight years since their first publicly available scholarly work as a faculty member in the field of teaching and learning.
Frenzel’s work as part of a team of pharmacy practice faculty includes projects to enhance pharmacy students’ knowledge about medication errors and patient safety; measuring health care students’ competence in treating adult cardiac arrest and attitudes toward inter-professional learning; and educational gaming to teach pharmacy students skills in self-care and disease state management.
The Emerging Teaching Scholar award highlights innovation to make education better. Ideas applied must be different, cutting edge or novel. Faculty members who receive awards must use experimental design to systematically study educational questions and exhibit teaching excellence.
“This selection by your peers signifies their recognition of you as a gifted teacher, scholar and academic leader,” said Michelle Assa-Eley, director of education for AACP, in the award notification letter to Frenzel.
Frenzel previously received a Laboratory and Teaching Excellence award from AACP. At NDSU, Frenzel has received the Mary J. Berg Award for Excellence in Teaching, an award for Excellence in Course Assessment from the Office of Teaching and Learning, the Peltier Award for Innovative Teaching, and was named a Faculty Preceptor of the Year.
She will receive the national Innovation in Teaching Award and be recognized as an Emerging Teaching Scholar by the Council of Faculties at the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy annual meeting on July 23 in Boston.
Frenzel earned her bachelor’s degrees in pharmaceutical sciences and microbiology from NDSU. She earned her doctorate in pharmacy and doctor of philosophy in adult and occupational education from NDSU.
