Jennifer Campion Friberg earned her B.A. in Communicative Disorders from San Diego State University, her M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology from Indiana University, and her doctorate in Curriculum & Instruction at Illinois State University. After serving as a SoTL Scholar-Mentor for three semesters, Friberg was named the Cross Endowed Chair in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning at Illinois State University in 2016. In this capacity, Friberg provides support, facilitation, and advocacy for SoTL research across campus and beyond.
Friberg joined the faculty of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2005, first as a visiting professor, then as a member of the tenure-track faculty. Teaching primarily courses centered on child language development and disorders, Friberg also has overseen over 100 independent studies and has led two study abroad trips with her students. Prior to coming to ISU, Friberg was employed as a school-based speech-language pathologist in Peoria, Illinois, providing services to children of all ages.
Friberg’s interest in SoTL was born her first year at ISU when she attended an “Intro to SoTL” workshop and learned that she could have an active research agenda focused on teaching and learning. In the years since attending that workshop, Friberg has focused a great deal of her time on disciplinary SoTL advocacy, co-authoring the first text on SoTL and co-founding the first SoTL journal in her field. Friberg co-founded the SoTL Advocate blog and is the editor of Gauisus, ISU’s internal SoTL publication. She is the co-chair of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning’s Advocacy and Outreach committee and is the Chair of the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology.
Away from work, Friberg can be found spending time with her family or planning her next travel adventure!
