TEACHING

Courses Taught
Spring 2012 ITFN 2001 - Professional Development Seminar in IT
 
Fall 2009 ITFN 2001 - Professional Development Seminar in IT

The purpose of this course is to help students develop the professional skills necessary to function competently in the business world of information technology.  

Course Ratings: Ranged from 4.83 - 5.00 (5 point scale)
 
Spring 2008 INSYS 525 - Instructional Design Models, Strategies, and Tactics

The purpose of this course is to help students make decisions about appropriate instructional design models, strategies, and tactics given the objectives of the instruction. Students in this course worked in teams to produce modules based on non-constructivist design models. When I taught this course, I employed technology, discussion-based methods, case-based learning and project-based learning. 

Course Ratings: Quality of Course: 6.56, Quality of Instruction: 6.67 (7 point scale)
 
  INSYS 602 – Supervised Teaching
 
Summer 2007 INSYS 595 - Internship
 
Spring 2007 INSYS 595 - Internship
 
Fall 2006 INSYS 595 - Internship
 
Spring 2006 INSYS 611 - Thesis Research
 
Fall 2005 INSYS 415 - Systematic Instructional Development

This course serves as an introduction to the field for graduate students in the Instructional Systems Program. The course is also an elective for undergraduate and graduate students outside of the program. When I taught this course, I used technology, discussion-based methods, case-based learning, and project-based learning. Students completed course assignments both individually and in groups.

Course Ratings: Quality of Course: 6.73, Quality of Instruction: 6.89 (7 point scale)
 
Fall 2005 INSYS 611 - Thesis Research
 
Spring 2005 INSYS 611 - Thesis Research
 
Fall 2003 INSYS 611 - Thesis Research
 
Fall 2002 INSYS 597A - Designing and Assessing in Higher Education

I developed this course to provide a means for students in Instructional Systems to learn how to consult with faculty and departments in higher education. Course Description: Working as an instructional designer in a higher education setting can be different from working as a design in a corporate setting. This course is designed to give you practical advice concerning the application of the instructional design process in higher education. Through readings and class discussions, you will learn about the nuances associated with higher education and how they can impact the design and assessment process. During the course, you will be given the opportunity to not only to plan a course, but also to engage in the role of a consultant to one of your peers.

Course Ratings: Quality of Course: 6.29, Quality of Instruction: 6.29 (7 point scale)

Academies Developed
Integrating Scholarship, Performance, and Research Experiences (InSPIRE) Academy
I designed and developed this program at Penn State. The academy consisted of a series of four workshops and working sessions designed to help faculty capitalize on their research strengths and help them integrate inquiry methods into their teaching. The primary goal of the program was to improve student learning and student motivation to learn by infusing the creation of knowledge, creative expression, and discovery into the undergraduate experience. During the Spring 2004, Fall 2004, Spring 2005, Fall 2005, and Fall 2006 semesters I facilitated the first two sessions: Designing for Inquiry and Creativity – An Introduction and Problem Development and Instructional Planning.
