Bio

Primary Responsibilities

As an Instructional Technology and Design Specialist at Nova Southeastern University, I work with subject matter experts to improve the teaching and learning process through student-centered instruction, problem-based learning and improvement of instruction in all its forms, whether in face-to-face, fully online, or blended environments. I specialize in Faculty Development, Online Learning Management Systems, instructional technology, and Teacher Education, among others.

On any typical day my activities may include any or all of the following: working on instructional design projects, teaching a workshop for faculty, helping a professor plan instruction for a course, producing, filming and/or editing an instructional video, conducting program evaluations, organizing faculty meetings, presenting at national and international conferences, collaborating with administration in program development and implementation, and publishing in a variety of media. Those are the main ones, but there are many more!  Now, if you asked me what I enjoy the most? The answer would definitely be helping educators discover a variety of instructional strategies to make each course reflects best practices in adult learning.

Education

I hold a Master’s Degree in Education-Instructional Technology, and, since learning is a life-long journey, I am currently a doctoral student at the Abraham S. Fischler College of Education of Nova Southeastern University. My major is ITDE: Instructional Technology and Distance Education.
