I am an instructor at Bellevue University where I teach in the College of Business. This includes topics on Social Computing, Design Thinking, Analytics, Web Technologies, Project Management, and Collaboration Strategies.
My research focus is Digital Literacy, Flipped Learning, Open Educational Resources (including MOOCs), Fostering Creativity, Learning Technologies, The Hype Cycle in Educational Technology, Learning Analytics, and Educational Technology in a Global Context.
This website also includes my observations and reflections on working virtually at home with often loud boys and my neverending quest for a quiet spot to read with a cup of tea.
My credentials include a Masters of Education in K12 Library Media Studies from Plymouth State University and a Doctor of Education in Instructional Technology and Distance Education from Nova Southeastern University.
We currently “float” between Maine and New Hampshire depending on if the boys’ school is in session. In both locations, I try and spend as much time on, in, under, or near the water as possible. With frequent trips to random coffee shops and tea houses to get work done. Our long term goal is leveraging our location independence for wider and longer term travel.
