Chemistry Faculty Member Earns Doctorate in E-Learning
Butzler defended her dissertation, “The Effects of Motivation on Achievement and Satisfaction in a Flipped Classroom Learning Environment."
Butzler is an avid educational advocate for “flipped classrooms” – a blended learning approach to standard classrooms. Flipped classrooms move lectures online, outside of class, and move assignments into the classroom where teachers can provide guidance and answer questions.
A resident of Jersey Shore and a native of Red Lion, Butzler has taught at Penn College for 15 years. She holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Gettysburg College, as well as a bachelor’s degree in science education and a master’s degree in organic chemistry from North Carolina State University.
