“I am hopeful, not out of mere stubbornness, but out of an existential, concrete imperative.” ~ Paulo Freire

Current Work

Instructure

As Senior Editor for Research and Education at Instructure, I support a team of researchers, writers, and data analysts in order to advance educational research. My work interfaces with Marketing, PR, and Product Development teams. I am also responsible for overseeing Keep Learning, the educational outreach blog for the company.

Hybrid Pedagogy

I am the director of Hybrid Pedagogy, a journal of learning, teaching, and technology. The journal features a unique collaborative peer review process that favors author agency over editorial authority. Educational outreach — in the form of MOOCs and Twitter chats — is a vital part of the work of the journal.

Digital Pedagogy Lab

Digital Pedagogy Lab is a foundation which provides educational and professional development for teachers, administrators, students, and others who work, teach, and learn in digital or hybrid environments. As a director, I oversee the annual institute and the development of new courses.

Consulting

I have more than 15 years teaching and instructional design experience in online, on-ground, and hybrid environments. I have worked with community colleges, small liberal arts colleges, corporations with educational interests, high school teachers, contingent faculty, tenure track faculty, instructional designers, and others.
