Michelle 'Shelley' McGuire, Washington State University

Dr. Michelle "Shelley" McGuire teaches in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Washington State University. She is the author of several published articles, and specializes in the research of understanding of how breastfeeding and lactation influence both maternal and child health and well-being. Recent research has focused on investigating how maternal diet influences milk fat content and, thus, energy intake and fatty acid consumption of the breastfeeding child. Dr. McGuire has been teaching the basic nutrition course for several years and has a strong appreciation of the course, its goals and objectives, and the variety of student needs. This experience coupled with her strong writing and research background has helped her create an exciting and refreshing text for the introductory nutrition course.

MindTap Instructors Speak on a Streamlined Workflow - Jonathan

Instructor Jonathan Varhola from Wright State University talks about how MindTap helps him streamline his workflow.

“Because my students had a pre-quiz to complete prior to the class, they were reading some, if not all, of the material prior to the instruction. This makes the classroom time more wisely utilized with reinforcing activities and discussions, rather than me regurgitating the textbook to them. The students rated the class much more favorably because we were doing active learning. Scores increased significantly in the students who consistently completed the assignments online, and students self-reported that they understood the information better with the online videos and case studies.”

“I wanted to provide my students with the best product and the best support at the best price, and that’s what I got.”

“I have always liked the Cengage textbook that I use for this class, but having the MindTap material to provide additional learning opportunities for my students is certainly an advantage.”

“I was awed because so many of my students earned an ‘A’ or ‘A-’ on the final exam. And students gave the MindTap intro class higher ratings than they gave my traditional intro class. I’m convinced that the higher course ratings and grades were, in large part, a result of students’ engagement.”

“MindTap definitely helped students be more prepared for lectures, because they engaged with the content before they came to class.”

“Once I started using MindTap I loved it. In fact, the students had so much success with it I actually expanded my pilot project, and I now use it in all of my classes.”

Cengage provides a range of supplements that are updated in coordination with the main title selection. For more information about these supplements, contact your Learning Consultant.
