Dr. Lori Ogden is a Teaching Associate Professor of Mathematics and an Associate Director of the School of Mathematical and Data Sciences at West Virginia University. She is the course coordinator for college algebra and has taught a variety of undergraduate mathematics courses including precalculus, trigonometry, and calculus. Her role as Associate Director includes running the Institute for Mathematics Learning where she leads initiatives that promote student success within all undergraduate mathematics courses through Calculus 3.  Recently she led the redesign of several entry-level courses by fostering the use of undergraduate learning assistants and the integration of assignments that teach students how to study, where to get help, and how to manage their time. In addition, she has developed and coordinated training opportunities for undergraduate learning assistants and professional development opportunities for faculty, instructors, and graduate students.
