Since joining Cal State San Bernardino in 1994, Janelle Gilbert has made a significant contribution to working with students in the classroom and using technology. Gilbert has taught more than a dozen different courses ranging from entry-level courses to the most advanced graduate courses. She has developed online course versions of some of the entry-level and mid-level courses. One of those classes led to her winning an Outstanding Originator in Distance Learning Award from the university’s Office of Distance Learning.
Gilbert, who is also involved in the university’s Gateway Program, also supervises the psychology department’s master’s graduate thesis program and has chaired 54 of those committees. She has also published many scientific articles during her tenure at CSUSB and has presented numerous papers at various conferences, including many with students.
