Online Faculty Development
CI takes pride in creating a family-like experience for students. The OTPP program contributes to this strategy by placing an emphasis on humanizing online learning. I remotely facilitate the Online Teaching Preparation Program (OTPP) at CSU Channel Islands, a series of three online courses designed to align with the CSU Quality Online Learning and Teaching framework.
Faculty who participate in the program are immersed in a community-oriented, connected learning experience that I facilitate from my home office, which is several hundred miles from campus. Each faculty experience is unique, of course, but data we've collected from the participants shows that the program is shifting faculty attitudes about online learning and opening eyes about how to cultivate instructor-student and student-student relationships from a distance.
Art History, Digital Citizenship & More
I taught art history full-time for seven years at Sierra College and the History of Photography at Mt. San Jacinto College (online) for four years. At CSU Channel Islands, I co-taught a blended course in digital citizenship with Dr. Jill Leafstedt. This Spring 2017, I will be teaching Advanced Teaching with Technology for current and future teachers.
