Ed. Technology

I am an Instructional Technologist at Texas Wesleyan University’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). The CETL promotes a student-centered university by providing resources and professional growth opportunities to faculty on enhancing instructional practice, integrating technology, and promoting essential student skills. In addition to my full time job, I am in the dissertation phase of my doctorate degree in Curriculum & Instruction (with emphasis in Educational Technology) at Baylor University. I have previously worked at the Baylor University School of Education Media Center, the Baylor Digital Media Studio, as a Graduate Fellow at the Academy for Teaching and Learning, and as a Graduate Assistant at the Online Teaching and Learning Services (Electronic Libraries). At Baylor, I have led many professional development seminars and I have presented at many professional conferences such as ATE, NMC, and ELI. My long-lasting professional goal is to demonstrate to educators that new technologies are not substitute to good teaching. Instead, they are tools that should be appropriately used to showcase the subject matter and lesson as well as to help students engage with the lessons to achieve the teacher’s intended learning outcomes. I consult with professors to identify pedagogical goals for their lessons, the kind of technologies (hardware, software, web 2.0) that are available that could be beneficially showcase/highlight/interact with the content, the strengths and weaknesses of those technologies as their relate to the goals of the lesson and students they have, as well as to measure and document the result of those experiences.
