Describe your research in about 200 words.
I am presently a Fellow with the Barbara Bush Foundation & Dollar General Foundation working with them on the use of learning technologies for adult literacy and guidance for foundations wishing to invest in the development in learning technologies. My research includes the use of performance improvement for assessing the needs of new teachers and developing targeted micro-instruction as well as the development of effective online and blended human resources workforce development for the federal government that can lead to eventual certification. I consults on a range of projects including online learning, the use of technology for learning, and organizational performance improvement. My areas of expertise include online and blended learning, educational / learning technologies, multimedia learning, performance improvement, ethics of technology and integration of societal impact into the design and planning process, as well as a deep background in accessibility and UDL.
What’s the most interesting thing you have learned from a student?
I’ve learned so much from students over the years, especially about how to improve my instruction. In particular, I’ve learned how to create space for them to explore and go beyond the course objectives – how to create supports and opportunities for that within a course and how to nurture them in further exploration.
