I started with Academic Technology Support Services in February 2013. In my role, I provide day-to-day direction for our team of student production assistants and coordinate our course and media production service area.
One of the many enjoyable aspects of working in the field of academic technology is the opportunity--and need--to continuously discover new practices in teaching and learning with technology. My professional interests include the learner experience in online courses, participatory and openly networked learning, and collaborative development of instruction that is authentic, relevant, and attuned to the needs of learners.
Before joining ATSS, I was with the University of Minnesota's Office of the Vice President for Research. My efforts focused on coordinating an internal certification program and assisting with the development of training for faculty, staff, and students engaged in research.
I am a graduate student in the Learning Technologies program, and hold a Master's degree in higher education administration, both through the University of Minnesota's College of Education and Human Development.
