By demonstrating the effectiveness of Dr. Kelly Hogan’s methods in large lecture classes, her work has received national attention in publications such as The New York Times, The Atlantic and Insight Diversity.  Dr. Hogan works with many of Carolina’s faculty to help them re-imagine their teaching and she has also shared her techniques with educators from institutions across the state and nation. Her teaching has also impacted a student audience far beyond those in her UNC-Chapel Hill classes. As the co-author of several biology textbooks (Campbell Biology’s Concepts and Connections and Essential Biology), Hogan has reached hundreds of thousands of students globally. She has also been recognized by her students through nine different campus, state and national awards for teaching, mentoring and advising. Hogan was the commencement speaker for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2015. She has been a driver of institutional reform within STEM to ensure that the gateway science courses are taught with high structure, active learning. Hogan completed her undergraduate degree in biology at The College of New Jersey in Ewing, New Jersey (B.S. 1996) and earned her doctorate from UNC-Chapel Hill (Ph.D. 2001).
