Leah Klement, Ph.D.

Education Specialist

Leah is an Education Specialist at the Engaged Teaching Hub in UCSD’s Teaching + Learning Commons. Focusing on faculty development, she works to support faculty in identifying and pursuing teaching goals that will enhance student learning and faculty enjoyment of teaching. Through programming and initiatives at the Engaged Teaching Hub, she also works more broadly to support research-driven, reflective teaching practices on campus.

Leah’s interests center on interdisciplinary faculty learning communities, creating inclusive learning environments, blended learning and other ways of increasing access to faculty development across the professoriate, and the early history of pedagogy.

Before coming to UCSD, Leah was a postdoctoral instructor at the California Institute of Technology, where she taught courses in freshman writing, medieval literature, and science fiction. Prior to her time at Caltech, she taught as a lecturer in the Princeton Writing Program, where she was also involved in curriculum assessment and summer academic programming. Leah holds a B.A. in Classics and English from Oxford University and a PhD in Comparative Literature (Medieval Studies) from Princeton University.
