Elizabeth Connor, M.Ed.

Elizabeth Connor is Professor of Education in the Zucker Family School of Education.  Before joining The Citadel in 2003, she worked as a library department head or library director at academic medical centers in three states (Maryland, Connecticut, and South Carolina) and two developing nations (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Commonwealth of Dominica).

Since joining The Citadel, LTC Connor has focused on fostering faculty development through learning communities and understanding how science undergraduates develop the habits of mind to start thinking like scientists do. In recent years, as a master gardener, former 4-H leader, and member of the Garden Club of Charleston, LTC Connor has explored how gardening and 4-H activities can be used to attract younger students to study STEM subjects.  LTC Connor has published widely on designing and renovating library facilities, using evidence-based teaching and learning methods, and combining the use of cases and clickers to engage learners.

During her 2019 sabbatical leave, LTC Connor conducted background and field research with her co-author Dr. Richard Porcher (Professor Emeritus, Biology) for a book in progress that will discuss the construction of the Santee Canal, South Carolina’s first commercial highway and the nation’s first summit canal.
