Dr. Baldwin earned her PhD in English from Stanford University. Her work focuses on faculty development in the grant writing and scientific communications, curriculum and evaluation development, and educational scholarship. She has also engaged in many aspects of research education over her career. Since 1998, Dr. Baldwin has taught a yearly course for faculty and fellows, "Scientific Writing for Clinical Research," given dozens of local and national workshops on scientific writing, and mentors many fellows and faculty in scientific communications.
Dr. Baldwin's current research focuses on the evaluation of curricular interventions and educational programs. A project within the University of Rochester Pediatric Residency Program is evaluating the effects of applying Self-Determination Theory to enhance resident autonomy. This project has been approved by the Initiative for Innovation in Pediatric Education. As Director of the Academic Pediatric Association's Educational Scholars Program, Dr. Baldwin is developing and testing methods for educational program improvement through structured curricular planning and systematic documentation of educator productivity. She is also evaluating the effectiveness of faculty development tools and programs on the academic vitality of junior faculty, in particular, a published toolkit for educator evaluation that includes an educator portfolio template and analysis tool, and practical guidelines for the evaluation of educators.
