Heather Lefkowitz

Lecturer, Department of Human and Organizational Development

Research: With a background in theological education, I am interested in contextual learning and how curriculum develops in contextual learning environments. I am also interested in career development, particularly in the undergraduate curriculum.  

Teaching: I teach and develop various curriculum for the Human & Organizational Development undergraduate capstone internship. I also teach the preparatory class for the capstone internship experience, Talent Management & Organizational Fit (2400).  I utilize creative practices in teaching such as theater and improvisation, human-centered design, and storytelling.  

Service:  I serve on the Peabody College Standing Academic Standards and Procedures Committee of Faculty Council, and I am a Faculty VUCeptor. As a VUCeptor I mentor first-year student groups and individual students.

Community Engagement: I belong to a number of organizations in the Nashville community.  I am a contributing artist for the Arts & Business Council Work Creative Program, serve on the board of the Richland Park Library and the Third Coast Project, and am an active volunteer in Metro Schools.
