Research Interests

My two areas of interest are instructional technology (design and delivery of instruction) for diverse/international students and visual literacy, especially as it relates to computer screen design and user interfaces/usability. Current research is on online learning, P12 technology use and filipped classrooms.

Seminars (taught occasionally on demand)

IM683(1) Seminar: Human Performance Technology

Productivity problems in the workplace have many causes. Instructional designers are experts at solving problems caused by a lack of skills, but what about other types of problems? Human performance technology offers a range of solutions. Using case studies and activities, you will explore and practice non-training solutions with a proven track record for effectiveness. 

IM683(2) Seminar: Design for Diversity 

Your classroom is beginning to change - there are students from diverse backgrounds, nations, cultures, and languages. How does this affect your instruction? What works, and how do you find appropriate curriculum materials? How does your own culture affect your instruction? Using experiential methods and case studies, you will explore and develop strategies for designing and modifying instruction for use with diverse learners in both educational and training settings. 

IM683(3) Seminar: Time and Project Managment 

You have three training projects and deadlines are looming. People and resources need to be in the right place at the right time while controlling costs. How do you do it? Time and project managment - core skills many employers look for when making hiring decisions. This seminar will give you an opportunity to develop time and project managment skills and explore both computerized and manual time and project managment systems. 


IIM686 Grants: Howto Write'Em and Get 'Em

Students will explore techniques and strategies for writing and presenting grant proposals. Participants will be given opportunities to network, explore database searching, and examine grant sources. Actual examples of grant proposals will be shown. Participants will practice techniques and strategies on thir own proposal ideas.
