As a lecturer at Ohio State, Danielle Schoon is dedicated to elevating, supporting and promoting instructional excellence and enhancing the learning outcomes and experiences of Ohio State students through contributions to the Drake Institute. She is an advocate of active learning and community engagement. She was chosen for the UCAT Course Design Institute in summer 2017, where she learned methods such as backward design, creating and fulfilling effective learning objectives, and how to assess student progress. She also completed all three components of the UITL Teaching Support Program, including the IR Portfolio, and earned an endorsement in the Course Design Institute Pathway.

Over the last three years, she has been a member of three learning communities with the Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning. These three communities focused on lecturer support, active learning, and developing research in the field of the Science of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). She is particularly dedicated to intercultural pedagogy. She received a Professional Development Grant from UCAT in 2017 to support her work in this area, and that same year she led a UCAT Common Reading Group of faculty members on Intercultural Pedagogy.
