About Me

I have been in the Instructional Technology field for 10 years, focusing online course design and faculty collaboration. I am currently an Instructional Technologist and Designer at the Queens College Center for Teaching and Learning, where I research and implement new technology-enhanced pedagogies.

I manage an Instructional Technology team comprised of undergraduate and graduate student technology mentors who assist me on our various instructional projects and initiatives, several of which I helped start. One such project, ePortfolios, grew to over 3,000 student users and over 100 faculty advisors in only 4 years. I collaborate with faculty members to enhance their teaching with technology through workshops and consultations. I research and develop tools to meet faculty needs, train the users, and provide continuing support. Creativity is essential to this process since proprietary tools don’t always meet the unique needs of our faculty. In these instances, I build new tools customized to their needs or work with existing programs to meet their needs.  One such example is my team’s work developing a system within Google Apps for individual and department-wide assessment. My colleagues and I assess the efficacy of these programs using quantitative and qualitative means.

I thrive in the Queens CTL’s collaborative environment; I enjoy working with others to improve and grow our understanding of pedagogy. I strive to improve and enhance the scholarship of my institution through implementing the most effective pedagogies. Instructional Technology stokes my passion for research and hands on technology implementation. I received my Master's Degree in Instructional Technology and Design from Columbia University's Teachers College.
