Thanks for reading my blog.
I am a researcher at the Graduate School for Education and Human Development (GSEHD) at George Washington University (GWU) in Washington DC where we study distance education at the Center for the Advancement of Research in Distance Education.
I’m also an adjunct instructor at Minnesota State University in Mankato, MN. I teach ENG 271W, a writing intensive (PDF) undergraduate technical communication course. I teach this class online in the evening from my office in DC using live audio/video for an interactive experience. The students are mostly from MN, but students can take this class from around the world. I also teach as an adjunct instructor and teaching assistant at the GSEHD at GWU. I mostly teach Education Technology, but I also assist in teaching other courses where I am qualified (and needed).
I completed my Master Certificate in the Mind, Brain, and Teaching program at the Johns Hopkins School of Education recently, and now I’m back in school in the Doctoral program in Special Education at GWU. I love it, the school.
I also work with clients on freelance research, transcription, and technical editing projects. And, I tutor grades 5-12 in writing. And, I’m a member of Toastmasters International. And, I sometimes volunteer at a local elementary school.
I do all these things because I like to think. I also like to write, and I like to read, and I like to teach. I really really love to do all these things. So, I do them often.
This blog is a home for my commentary and ideas about the things I research, read, and analyze. If I write things down, I remember them better. It also gives me some space to consider how things work and how pieces of research fit together.
