EAU CLAIRE — Dr. Angela Stombaugh has been named director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Stombaugh, an associate professor of nursing and a nurse practitioner on staff at the Student Health Service at UW-Eau Claire, will begin July 1 in her post as CETL director. She will serve a three-year term.

CETL, established in 2008 with a goal of providing better institutional support for improving student learning, involves faculty and staff in professional development activities that help them design and implement superior educational experiences.

Stombaugh succeeds Dr. Robert Eierman as CETL director. Eierman led CETL first as interim director from 2008-11 and then as director from 2011-13.

"I am thrilled to have Dr. Stombaugh serve as the new director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning," said Dr. Michael Wick, UW-Eau Claire's associate vice chancellor for academic affairs. "Since joining the faculty of nursing, she has emerged as an exemplar of the Center's name: excellence in teaching and learning. In addition, her background in adult education and her prolific record of scholarship on teaching and learning make her a wonderful choice for position."

Stombaugh joined the UW-Eau Claire faculty in 2007. She has been active as a participant, presenter, consultant and group leader for CETL programs and has created instructional development programming both in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences and universitywide. She also serves as the chair of the University Senate Technology Committee. In her college, Stombaugh has taught at the undergraduate, master's and doctoral levels, has been active in a four-year process of undergraduate nursing curriculum revision, and has been an innovator and leader in the use of technology.

"I look forward to serving UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students through the important work of CETL," Stombaugh said. "Some of my priorities in the director position will include faculty development for initiatives on campus such as liberal education, continuing to emphasize the use of technology in teaching, and assistance to faculty in development and assessment of assignments and courses."

Stombaugh holds bachelor's and master's degrees in nursing from UW-Eau Claire and a doctorate in adult education from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
