As the Online Learning & Distance Education University Support and an Instructional Designer for the Teaching & Learning Center (TLC) at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York, I assist the implementation and evaluation of university online learning initiatives; act as a resource to faculty and departments seeking to supplement instruction through the development of high quality online courses, hybrid courses, and degrees; and facilitate a university-wide culture of exploration and dialogue around online education. I also provide guidance to faculty to develop methods and strategies to help their students achieve desired learning objectives.
Read a brief statement about my teaching philosophy. I'm constantly researching methods regarding how technology can be used to enhance meaningful learning environments.
