Bio

Karen Goodlad is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Hospitality Management at CUNY’s New York City College of Technology specializing in food and beverage management. Recently she has taught Wine and Beverage Management, Wines of the New World, Perspectives in Hospitality Management, and Dining Room Operation. In addition to her joy of teaching she is often found working with students as the Faculty Advisor to the Walt Disney World College Program Campus Representatives.

Finding it important to continually increase her understanding of the teaching and learning practices, she works as the Director of the Living Lab General Education Seminar and Faculty Co-coordinator of First-year Learning Communities. Here she works with full-time and part-time faculty focused on Incorporating High Impact Educational Practices, Open Pedagogy, Place Based Learning and Assessment Measures into their teaching practices.

She is a Certified Specialist of Wine with the Society of Wine Educators. This certification is evidence of her passion for expanding her own knowledge about wine and beverages but also her desire to effectively teach the subject.

As a member of the board of directors of Les Dames d’Escoffier, the premier international organization of women leaders in food, beverage and hospitality, she finds pleasure in working on various committees throughout the organization including a four year commitment as Co-Chair of the Scholarship Committee whereby she helped further the organization’s mission in support of education, advocacy and philanthropy.

It is through all her work that she seeks to provide endless opportunities for students to pursue their passions and attain their goals.
