Faculty Bio

Dr. Kolomitro  is a human anatomist who, because of her strong commitment to improving students' learning experiences, went on to earn a Ph.D. in Education from OISE/University of Toronto. Believing that students learn best when course activities are relevant to their learning goals and when they feel valued as individuals, Dr. Kolomitro designs and teaches courses that allow students choice, encourage active learning, promote critical thinking and build on students’ prior knowledge and experience. To her, it is important to provide students with the necessary tools to succeed − be it in their academics, career goals or as good citizens. Her goal in teaching is to get students excited about anatomy, intrigued, and to want to know more. In her mind, this ability to discover new meanings and uncover new perspectives is where the true beauty of learning anatomy lies. Valuing students and their input, Dr. Kolomitro considers teaching to be a reflective practice; she consistently invites student feedback and adjusts her approaches according to what she sees happening with learners in the classroom.‚Äč
