Hello! My name is Karen Sobel. I direct the Center for Faculty Development and Advancement at the University of Colorado Denver. I am also an Associate Professor and Teaching and Learning Librarian at the Auraria Library in Denver, Colorado.
Research has played a large part in my work since I took my first position at CU Denver in 2008. At present, I am pursuing two major themes in my research. First, I am exploring the role that transfer of learning plays in information literacy instruction. Second, I am working on theoretical and practical strategies for supporting students’ social justice needs through public services librarianship. Please visit my research page to learn more.
