Lauren Marsh

Academic Technologist

In my role as academic technology consultant I work with members of the University community to leverage academic technology and improve the educational experience. Of particular interest to me are strategies for engaging faculty in conversations and planning in order to integrate technology into the curriculum.


I received my Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in English; my research focused on the rise of "useful knowledge" in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Britain. I wrote and developed educational courseware at Plato Learning for three years before returning to the University to work at the intersections of teaching and academic technology in 2003.
