I have been active in the instructional technology world for over 20 years. My previous positions include: high school teacher, university lecturer, school district technology facilitator, multimedia author, and project manager for an educational technology company.

My current position is Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction in the School of Education at Seattle Pacific University. My current task is exploring the possibility of creating a masters degree in digital teaching and learning. My most recent previous position was Director of Instructional Technology at SPU. As Director, I regularly consulted with faculty on effective uses of technology. I have been involved in the development of numerous online and blended courses. In addition, I have taught face-to-face, blended, and online courses in the School of Education for over ten years.

Recent projects include: developing a Web 2.0 electronic portfolio system based on WordPress, creating a feature-comparison matrix for lecture capture solutions, and leading SPU’s iTunes U project. I have facilitated faculty learning communities on topics such as learning spaces, active learning, blended learning, and mobile learning.

I am an Associate Editor for MERLOT’s Teacher Education Editorial Board. I served as program chair for the 2013 International Symposium for Emerging Technologies in Online Learning, and will be the conference chair for the 2014 conference.
