Graduate students I taught at Wuhan University in China. Yes, that's a chalk board.
Teaching is at the heart of my work. I teach courses about technology literacy, technology integration, innovation, educational psychology, and research methods. I have created and taught online courses and am program coordinator for Educational Studies, BAE. Students who take my courses say I have high expectations and have a creative way of making learning meaningful and engaging. I believe technology is necessary to the most effective teaching and learning experiences.
Leadership in Teaching
I serve as program co-coordinator for Educational Studies BAE (online and face-to-face). In 2014, I was appointed by the Dean as a Fellow for the Arizona State University Leadership Academy Cohort II in support of my role as Program Coordinator for the Educational Studies degree. In 2018, the online program hosted 12,177 scheduled credit hours (SCH or “seats”) and was noted as the fastest-growing undergraduate degree at ASU.
With colleagues K. Graziano, D. Schmidt-Crawford, and D. Slykhuis, I initiated and facilitated an international research protocol that resulted in the Teacher Educator Technology Competencies (TETCs), the knowledge and behaviors needed by teacher educators who teach technology-infused courses. I also facilitated the development of the Technology Outcomes (TOs), target behaviors for teacher candidates used to guide how technology is infused in certification programs in our college.
I champion technology being an essential and inseparable part of teaching and learning. Twice, I have been fortunate to be awarded the Best Practice Award for the Innovative Use of Technology (with colleagues, 2009 and 2017) by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education for advancing technology in my college. In 2016, colleagues in my college awarded me the Excellence in Integrating Scholarship and Teaching Award for “focused scholarship on educational technology and technology infusion, successful collaboration to integrate research with pedagogical needs, and leadership toward creating a nationally recognized model.”
