I created this course in 2010 as part of my
dissertation research. It is my favorite course to teach!
I am currently a Senior Instructional Develpoment Specialist at UWM for the Milwaukee Child Welfare Partnership. In this role I oversee quality improvement plans in the key areas of instructional technology, curriculum development, and program planning. Before that I was the Instructional Technology and Effective Practices Research Coordinator in the Hedberg Library at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI. A large part of my position involved working with faculty to incorporate technology effectively into their teaching and research. I also did a variety of information literacy instruction for various courses and departments on campus.
Last May I completed my PhD in Education from UWM. During my time as a doctoral student I worked as an adjunct instructor for an undergraduate course on information literacy and a teaching assistant for an intro to information science course. I also worked as a research assistant for a grant that dealt with assistive educational tools and technology and how they affect student learning. I have my Masters in Library and Information Science and previously worked as an online academic librarian where I did most of my teaching and reference work via live chat and email.
