Dr. Tara J. Allen, the Dr. Burnell Landers Chair and professor of biology at William Jewell College, will present the Carl F. Willard Distinguished Lecture on Thursday, November 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Gill Family Meeting Room in Yates- Gill College Union on the campus in Liberty, Mo. A reception will follow; the public is invited at no charge.
Dr. Allen’s lecture is titled “Bringing Life to the Study of Life: The Use of Analogies, Case Studies and Research in the Teaching of Biology.” She will discuss and provide examples of several teaching modalities used in science education and describe how research is used as a teaching tool at all levels in the program.
Dr. Allen earned her bachelor’s degree with majors in biology and chemistry from the University of Evansville, and her doctorate of physiology from the University of Missouri-Columbia. She began teaching at William Jewell in 2000.

The Willard Lecture is named for the late Carl Willard, a trustee at William Jewell from 1967-1991. To honor Willard’s memory and perpetuate his ideals, friends established the Carl F. Willard Distinguished Teacher Award at William Jewell as a continuing investment in tomorrow’s leaders. The Faculty Development Committee recommends honorees to the Dean and President of the College, who make the final selection for the annual award.

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
