I am a Senior Instructional Technologist working at a 4 year university in the NYC area.
In my role teaching teachers, I develop a wide range of technology resources for faculty and teach them best practices in using technology-based teaching methods and materials. I am also a Blackboard Administrator and am part of the Distance Learning team that helps to design and create online courses.
Over the past six years I have given engaging workshops, presentations, and talks on a wide range of topics such as Designing Effective Presentations, Fostering Discussions and Community and Collaborating on the Web: Transforming Teaching and Research in Higher Education. I strongly believe in collaboration and sharing resources, and the 98 slidedecks I have posted online total almost half a million views.
I have broad experience in helping faculty develop interactive lessons and activities both in the face-to-face format as well as online. I am well versed in every aspect of filmmaking including producing, directing, filming and editing video. I have extensive experience working with faculty to create flipped classes and I have a deep understanding of digital pedagogical methods and their potential to improve learning outcomes.
Prior to working at the higher-ed level, I taught high school math for ten years. I hold a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin.
Click on my “Resources for Teachers” to view some of the different spots on the web where you can find resources I’ve created or curated. This includes links to my Delicious and Slideshare accounts, as well as my Protopage and wikis that I’ve started.
I’m also currently working on The EdTech Bible which will be available later this year. The EdTech Bible is the book that I wish I had when I began my career in the classroom. I’m excited to share my expertise with those new to the classroom as well as experienced teachers looking for new ideas. The EdTech Bible will be available on Amazon and as a multimedia app, sign up on The EdTech Bible website to be notified of news and when it launches.
