Although not a well-known celebrity,
to my family Dr. Kampmeier
has had incredible impact.
How do you impact your student?
Dr. Kampmeier is probably one of the main reasons why I am where I am today, professionally. I was a PBL leader under him for 2.5 years. He inspired me to focus on education and teaching. And he is THE reason why Rochester's science & peer-based education is unique.
He taught organic chemistry for 30+ years without notes --
just a piece of chalk, a board, and 100's of students each year.
Many can attest to the impact he has had in education, as Peer-Based Learning, a model in education which he pioneered, has crossed from the chemistry department to other undergraduate departments, to the medical school, and to national/international levels.
