My online persona

I am teaching two graduate courses this term (Fall 2017) - EDT 621 Topics in Educational Technology and EDT 635 Instructional Systems Design - as well as advising students in EDT 693 (capstone) and EDT 684 (field experience). I will also be submitting our response to concerns documents and evidence to ISTE for our 2016 national recognition and curricular proposals for our courses and programs. 

Other scholarly projects include a chapter for a textbook on online learning and a presentation at the 2017 Mid-west Educational Research Association (MERA) conference in October. 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 which in 2018 will be in Grand Rapids, MI.

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 more of my favorites on our personal website.
