Education is a social process; education is growth; education is not preparation for life but is life itself.
— John Dewey

Academics and Instructional Design

My professional work has been focused on teaching, learning, and integrating technology in Higher Education. My hands have been in all parts of the student experience, from orientation to graduation. I’ve designed and taught faculty development courses on online teaching and teaching in Active Learning Classrooms. I’ve also taught online, graduate-level courses in instructional design and educational technology. My interests are in learning environments, student development, and the business of Higher Education.

Educationally, I have a bachelor’s degree from Montana State University in Technology Education-Industrial Technology and a master’s degree from Montana State University Billings in Educational Technology. I have graduate certificates in Online Teaching and Learning from MSUB and College Teaching from MSU.
