Describe your role in education
I am the Visiting Coordinator for Instructional Design for the Web-based Information Science Education (WISE) Consortium. I work with faculty, doctoral students, and professionals in the field of Library and Information Science to provide resources for effective practices in online pedagogy.
Over the past two years I have taught Moodle workshops and coordinated face-to-face workshops sponsored by WISE and the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library and Information Science online (LEEP) program. Most recently, I've put together an on-demand website tutorial, Introduction to Online Pedagogy, with forums for supplemental discussion.
