As the Associate Director Instructional Design at SUNY Oswego, I lead and manage a team of top-notch Instructional Designers to support faculty in online and hybrid course design and development as well as providing consultation and assistance to teaching faculty regardless of modality. The instructional designers and I also disseminate information on effective teaching practices, usability, and information design for online learning.
As a non-traditional student and life-long learner, I am passionate about supporting faculty as they work to create engaging online learning experiences for our students. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in a fully online program. Experiencing online learning from the student perspective helps inform my practice as an instructional designer and in my role as the college’s Senior Instructional Designer.
