In October 2014, I was hired as an instructional technologist for the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay, where I had just earned my undergraduate degree in English and Humanistic Studies.
While attending UWGB, I became interested in “The Digital,” and decided that I wasn’t going to learn what I wanted to if I kept taking the same kinds of classes where I read a book, then wrote a paper, then read a different book, and wrote another paper.
I now encourage instructors to consider open pedagogy, reflective and integrative assignments, and inclusive course design.
I work for UW-Green Bay’s Center for Teaching and Learning, and collaborate with instructors to thoughtfully integrate technology and tools that help students succeed.
Some of my interests include: open pedagogy, ePortfolios, digital and public humanities, podcasting, and cats.
