I teach all of the undergraduate pre-service elementary and adolescent teaching candidates in the course EDUC 150: Learning Through Technology. The focus of this course is not proficiency in any specific technologies/tools, but that candidates will learn how to choose and use technologies to support effective teaching and learning. They will become instructional designers who create materials in accordance with learning theory, UDL, and Mayer's Mulitmedia Principles. Additionally, candidates learn about the importance of modeling and explicitly teaching students how to use technology in an ethical, legal, and safe way.
Another regular course that I teach is EPSY 506: Content-Area Assessment and Portfolio Development. This is a graduate class for students in the MA in Educational Psychology programs. In the spring semester this course is offered on-campus to students in the 5-year program and traditional on-campus degree route, and in the summer it is delivered in hybrid format with one intense week on campus and 5 more online.
In the Fall 2017 semester I taught a First Year Seminar titled Cyberethics. As freshman strengthened their writing and presentation skills, they explored many issues related to the ethical use of technology in the online, medical, academic, and political realms.
Other duties at Marist include chairing the Online and Distance Education Committee (2016-2018), acting as the faculty liaison for the Teachers of Tomorrow student group, serving on the Assessment Committee to help with NCATE/CAEP accreditation, participating in Academic Integrity hearings, and assisting with faculty search committees. In any given semester I have approximately 20 undergraduate advisees and 30-40 graduate advisees working through the Capping Portfolio process.
