Profile Information

about me
I am currently working in the Office of CIO, Academic Technologies as an Instructional Designer. I work with faculty creating online courses, MOOCs, SPOCs, and Innovative technology project. During the last 12 years I worked as a Visiting Assistant Professor with SUNY/Empire State College Center for Distance Learning and International Programs. I taught online and blended courses in Panama, Dominican Republic, Prague, Turkey and Lebanon. I frequently present at academic and industry conferences about the uses of Cloud Computing in education and my experiences teaching in a blended learning environment in Latin America. I hold a BS in Mechanical Engineering and MBA from Union College and a PhD in Education from UAlbany. My doctoral research was on women, self-efficacy and mathematics.

I was PI for a 2013 tier 3 SUNY Innovative Instructional Technology Grant (IITG) "Cross-Cultural Experiential Learning Evaluation Project " The goal of this grant is to investigate the use of AACU rubrics and e-portfolios as a way to assess students global experiences. I was co-PI for a 2012 IITG, "Virtual Study Abroad: Student Engagement & International Interaction Using Meeting & Mobile Tools ".

Areas of interest include using virtual tools to increase global collaboration and internationalization of the curriculum, OER, social media, cloud computing, and e-portfolios. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, biking, hiking, and snowboarding
