Tracy Daly is an Adjunct Professor in the Kinesiology Department at California State University San Marcos, the Nutrition Department at San Diego Mesa College, the Public Health Program at National University in San Diego, and Madonna University in Michigan. She teaches general and specialized nutrition and health courses in a variety of disciplines and has taught extensively in face-to-face and online environments at major universities and community colleges since 2006. She is a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and has a Masters degree in Nutrition Education.
Tracy uses MindTap for her general health and sports nutrition courses in both synchronous and asynchronous formats and couldn't be happier with the range of tools offered not only to her students but also for herself as an instructor. Her students consistently tell her they utilize many aspects of MindTap outside of the required assignments, which enhances their learning prior to and after discussion in class and in online forums. She appreciates the detailed gradebook, assessment reports and ease of scheduling assignments, quizzes, exams, and ancillary materials as well as checking student progress at a glance.
Interestingly, Tracy was encouraged to use the Sizer/MindTap book/application when she was offered a course two weeks prior to the start of the semester. She was apprehensive due to the learning curve needed with new textbooks and online tools; however, she was pleasantly surprised to have become fairly proficient after only a few weeks of using MindTap. The support and guidance she has received was outstanding and she couldn't be happier with the materials.
