My online persona

I am teaching one graduate course this term (Spring/Summer 2017) - EDT 620 Evaluating & applying instructional media - as well as advising students in ED 693 (capstone), EDT 699 (independent study) and EDT 684 (field experience). I continue working on scholarly projects, including evaluating student learning as participation in asynchronous online discussions (AOD) in our graduate courses the examining the role of instructor presence in learning. 

A formal evaluation of our online M.Ed. degree in educational technology was published in the Journal Studies in Educational Evaluation (December, 2016). I also review articles for the Journal of Educational Computing Research and the Online Learning Journal Our M.Ed. degrees in educational technology recently received national recognition from our SPA (ISTE/CAEP) and have been ranked as one of the best online graduate education programs by U.S. News and World Report over the last three years which is something we are extremely proud of!

I am also a steering committee member of the MACUL online/blended learning (OBL) Special Interest Group (SIG) and actively participate in SIG offerings, the annual conference. I am also presenting some work on faculty preparation for online/blended teaching at the 2017 Campus Technology Conference in Chicago, IL July 16-18.

On the personal side, I spend as much time outdoors as I can, hiking, golfing, biking, and taking outdoor photographs in West Michigan. All of the photos on this site are mine and I posted some of my favorites on our personal website.
