Philosophy of teaching:
I value the small, informal classes with face to face contact at NEC where students can engage in their own learning. I, generally, facilitate learning by presenting readings, assignments, activities, discussions, laboratory exercises or props to which students can question, research and become engaged with to further their own learning.

Dr. Dunlop first taught at New England College in 1978 -1980 as a Laboratory Instructor. After earning a PhD and working as a consulting botanist, she returned in 1990, from which time, she has taught continuously at NEC.
