Joyner’s courses focus on practical application of food science concepts, critical thinking and problem-solving. Topics covered include engineering and quality management principles that are used in the food industry as well as sensory aspects of dairy products. She uses multiple active learning strategies in all courses to promote improved depth of learning and long-term retention.
