Haynes, Ed.D., MSHA, FACHE is a multi-award winning educator due to her style of teaching adult learners and her years of applied healthcare experience and subject matter expertise in healthcare administration and management. In addition, Dr. Haynes is Board Certified by the American College of Healthcare Executives. As a faculty member for adult learners, she believes in aligning her teaching methods and approach based on the course learning objectives. Thus, the instructional methods used are suited to the material to be learned and the students learning the material.

Dr. Haynes recognizes that some classes are better taught providing multiple methods for students to internalize the material such as facilitated discussions, learning activity, case studies etc. There is no one method that fits all courses or students. For example, some students do best using visuals while others internalize information better when they have the ability to apply concepts through activities. In all of her courses irrespective of modality she strives to strive to create an engaging learning environment through a variety of means. She has multiple research interests that are centered on the development of leadership competencies for those working in healthcare.
