Experience: Dr. Weigel's passion for teaching began in 2010 when she first taught Psychology at Century. After taking a break to care for her family, she was thrilled to be able to return to part-time teaching in spring 2020.
Teaching Approach: "I view teaching as a partnership, and I value the lived experiences of my students and the unique learning opportunities that they provide when shared within a supportive classroom. I believe that learning happens best within the context of supportive relationships, and I work hard to build and maintain relationships with students so that I am able to meet each student where they are in their academic journey. I strive to make my classes active, hands-on, and relevant to everyday life."
Education: BS, Psychobiology, Centre College; PhD, Clinical Psychology, University of Louisville; Clinical Internship, Minneapolis VA Medical Center

Experience: Melissa Williams began her career in higher education as a media historian, teaching about the intersections of American popular culture and politics. Her role as Instructional Technology Fellow in the American Studies program at the University of Minnesota eventually led to a career shift to Instructional Design. She has since worked at a variety of colleges and universities in the Twin Cities, providing support and guidance to faculty regarding research-based best practices in effective online and hybrid learning. Melissa is the Quality Matters Coordinator for Century College.
Teaching Approach: "I approach my work with faculty as an opportunity to do two things: enhance the clarity and effectiveness of the student learning experience, and reduce the burden for faculty of having to learn technologies and learning science in addition to their disciplinary expertise. It is an honor and a delight to explore the many different disciplines Century faculty cover as I partner with them! I prioritize Universal Design for Learning (a framework that prioritizes accessibility as beneficial to all students) and use the Quality Matters Higher Education rubric as my standard for excellence in course design."
Education: B.A., Belmont University; Ph.D., University of Minnesota
Notable Achievements: Melissa has managed several institution-wide initiatives, including an accessible document overhaul for a law school and a 500-course shift to a new eportfolio tool. She is a graduate of the ID2ID Program, a cross-institutional peer mentoring program for instructional designers.
Hobbies: Cooking, gardening, camping, reading

Portrait of Valerie Wilwert
Experience: Valerie Wilwert has taught courses in General Psychology, Research Methods (advanced and beginning level), Social Psychology, and Health Psychology. Her prior teaching experience involves a variety of different age groups and locations (with some of the highlights including teaching high school level Advanced Placement Psychology, and teaching English in China!). Valerie's specific areas of research interest include generational culture, and understanding how people might see the world differently just because of the time period in which they were born! In addition to many years of teaching, Valerie also has experience managing a psychological research lab, in which a large amount of time was spent mentoring individual students as they developed their own research projects.
Teaching Approach: "Psychology is the scientific study of human behavior, so what better way to understand these key theories than to learn how they apply to real life! I love to use interesting stories to illustrate key course concepts, and invite my students to participate in a lot of hands-on demonstrations in order to help make sense of the more challenging course concepts. We can learn so much about psychology, just from looking around us and identifying its everyday applications. In my undergraduate years, I have to admit that I used to be a bit intimidated by scientific research. Through practice (and a few really bad studies early on), I began to love it, and I enjoy helping my students think about the world scientifically. I think that's a skill that helps us every day!"
Education: B.S. Secondary Social Studies Education, Bemidji State University; B.S. Psychology, Bemidji State University; M.A. Psychology, Metropolitan State University
Hobbies: Hanging out with family, running and fitness activities, traveling, outdoor concerts, and reading

Portrait of Ruth Wollersheim
Experience: Ruth Wollersheim teaches Humanities, Film Studies, and Gender Studies, and is the current Gender Studies Program Director at Century College. She received a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in an interdisciplinary program called Modern Studies where her areas of concentration were feminist film and media studies, feminist theory, and cultural studies. Her dissertation examined the popularity of the desperate housewife character in innumerable films, television shows, and cooking blogs. Ruth has been teaching at Century for over 10 years.
Teaching Approach: Ruth's philosophy for teaching and learning comes from her strong commitment to social justice and equity as well as her background in interdisciplinary teaching and learning in the broader humanities, such as in film and critical media studies, gender studies, and English literature and composition. In other words, she believes in the transformative power of storytelling across disciplines, identities, and cultures. She also considers teaching and learning a matter of continual trial and error. Ruth loves the energy of the classroom and is always concerned when you are not there. Additionally, she really, really, really wants you to succeed and find strength in your journey and your unique identity.
Education: PhD, Modern Studies, (focused on culture, media, and theory); Women's Studies Graduate Certificate
Notable Achievements: Recent publication: "Feminism's Reoccurring Nightmare: Monstrous Patriarchy, Pulp Horror, and The Stepford Wives" in an anthology, Horror Comes Home: Essays on Hauntings, Possessions and other Domestic Terrors in Cinema
Hobbies: Craft beer, saunas, lake swimming, canoes, Bernese Mountain Dogs, vintage dresses, and human rights.

Portrait of Tracey Wyman
Experience: Tracey Wyman has been teaching in higher education for over 30 years in the Human Services and Addiction Counseling Programs. She led several initiatives on campus to encourage faculty and staff to make the curricula and learning environment more multiculturally equitable and served as the Chief Diversity Officer and Director of Global Education at Century. Tracey's career started as a therapist which allows her to bring many relevant examples in to the classroom. She has served on several boards, state licensing committees, and been an academic dean, but her true love is working with students in the classroom. She is a member of the National Organization for Human Services.
Teaching Approach: "I love teaching! I believe it is important to combine knowledge and application, so my classes involve a short lecture followed by practice, discussion and other ways to apply what we are learning. I try to create a learning environment where everyone feels supported and valued. I appreciate the diversity in our students and help students to listen and recognize the strengths that each individual brings. I also think it is important to have fun. When students leave my classroom, I want them to have the skills and confidence they need to successfully help their clients and yet hunger to keep learning more."
Education: MS, Guidance & Counseling, University of WI; BS, Business Administration, University of WI
Notable Achievements: Presidents' Civic Engagement Steward Award; National Institute for Staff & Organizational Development Excellence Award; Spirit of Excellence in Teaching Award
