I love using technology to help people learn. Let's take a look at a few examples.

DePaul Online Teaching Series (DOTS)

As Assistant Director of Faculty Instructional Technology Services at DePaul University, I oversee a variety of faculty development initiatives, including DOTS, which prepares faculty to develop quality online and hybrid courses. The program consists of an intensive, 36-hour course that is delivered in a hybrid format. Noteworthy DOTS achievements under my leadership include:

HCI 723: Human-Centered Interactive Design

I developed all of the instructional content and assignments for HCI 723 while completing my MFA coursework at the Savannah College of Art and Design. The course was a finalist in Blackboard's 2006 Greenhouse Award competition (now known as the Blackboard Exemplary Course Award). After being recognized as a finalist, I was asked to serve as a judge for other course competitions sponsored by Blackboard, which allowed me to review unique approaches to course design from a variety of institutions and instructors.

Photography 714: Digital Craft I

As a media designer in the eLearning department at the Savannah College of Art and Design, I established design standards for a wide variety of online courses and degree programs. This included PHOT 714, a digital photography course that won the Instructional Technology Council Award for Outstanding Online Course in 2005. In addition, the entire digital photography online program won the ITC Award for Outstanding Distance Education Program in 2007.
