I'm a lecturer, situativity theorist, and phenomenologist in the Learning Technologies Program. My work focuses on humanizing technology design in online learning, personal learning environments, and workplace learning. My current research applies post-intentional phenomenology to better understand lived experiences in distance learning. My future work will extend the research on connectedness to communities of practice.

I teach foundational courses in instructional design, distance education, online learning communities, and computer applications for business and education. My background is in instructional design, specializing in e-learning in business and industry including finance, defense, healthcare, and energy sectors.

Courses:

CI 5330 Special Topic: Foundations of Instructional Design
CI 5325 Designing and Developing Online Distance Learning
CI 5323 Online Learning Communities
CI 5321 Foundations of Distance Education
CI 5301 Foundations of Computer Applications for Business & Education
