An educator is a scholar as well as a practitioner. I spend the majority of my time as an administrator helping to facilitate and construct learning spaces of high quality, rigorous design, interactivity and authenticity. In my work at Seattle Pacific University and in the general education arena, I function as a producer for the conceptualization, development, implementation, assessment and continuation of academic innovations.
- Defining Innovation – a three-year study designed as an on-demand learning environment addressing the past (2016), present (2017) & future (2018) of academic innovation (OLC Innovate Conference)
- The ‘Untitled School of Business, Government & Economics Project on Ethics in Business’ – a grant and donor-funded learning experience designed around Seattle Pacific University’s Another Way of Doing Business model. Online course production designed through a series of in-house documentary films rather than instructor-led lecture. Expected launch of course on the Canvas network: January 2018.
- BioCORE – an initiative headed by the SPU Biology Department with support from the Institute for Academic Innovation, BioCORE is designed to support first-year Pre-Professional Health students from historically underrepresented populations both in their coursework as well as their transition to the expectations of a university student.
