Projects

Instructional Design and Development Projects:

Preparing to Teach Online: Self-Paced Training Modules on Online Teaching
Co-developed and designed self-paced modules on online teaching. This training program, delivered via the Blackboard Learn platform, was designed to introduce and train faculty new to teaching online. This project was funded by a Venture Grant from the Northern Illinois University Foundation and the Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center at Northern Illinois University.

Examining the Use of Technology Tools in an Undergraduate Computers in Education Course
Due to the nature of rapidly changing technological advancements in education, the purpose of this study is to explore an online introductory computers in an education course. Because this course is traditionally taught face-to-face in a laboratory environment, I examine students’ perceptions of learning to use computers and interactive technologies in a completely online learning environment. I plan to integrate different technology tools to support various components of an online course including assessment and communication. By better understanding student perceptions, we can reevaluate the technology tools used in teaching and supplementing our online and face-to-face university-level courses.
