Dr. Danielle Webster is a Lecturer at the University of Central Florida. She received her Bachelors of Science in Microbiology and Cell Science from the University of Florida and went on to earn her Ph.D. in Cellular Biology from the University of Georgia.
Even though she is a trained cell biologist, over the years she developed a profound passion for education. She focuses her teaching methodology primarily on creating a learning-centered environment. She believes she should be cognizant of the diversity within a student population and therefore strives to create a learning-rich environment that focuses on individual student needs and adapts her teaching style and methods accordingly.
Serving her community has always been of utmost importance to Dr. Webster. She is dedicated to increasing the scientific literacy and capacity of students of all ages. As such, she has volunteered to design and coordinate several science education programs within her local communities. In 2011, she co-founded the non-profit organization Society for Scientific Advancement (SOSA), to expand her reach outside of her local community and promote science education in the Caribbean where she originates. She conceptualizes, organizes and delivers workshops catering to young Jamaican students promoting the STEM discipline and exciting them about scientific learning. Through SOSA also organizes annual scientific conferences that provide a platform for scientists and health care providers worldwide to attend and form new collaborations.
