Profile Summary

I am the Director of Learning Design and Technologies for the Department of Engineering Professional Development in the College of Engineering.  In this role, I serve as an learning systems and technology leader within the department, to help coordinate and manage the design, development and delivery of instructional offerings that our department supports.  This includes both credit and non-credit courses and programs in all STEM areas. I am also a key member of the EPD Programming Coordination team which is involved in the planning, design and development of specialized web applications and database systems for strategic departmental and college initiatives. I also teach online courses in several of our online graduate programs.

Originally from Colorado, I have lived in Fort Collins, CO, Bloomington, IN and Madison, WI.  Prior to joining UW–Madison, I was the Assistant Director of the Office of Instructional Consulting in the School of Education at Indiana University. I received a BS in Experimental Psychology from Colorado State University, and an MS in Information Science with an emphasis in human-computer interaction and instructional systems technology (IST) from Indiana University.

I lead the Learning Design and Technologies Unit within Engineering Professional Development.  Our team provides effective support, consultation, strategic planning, and leadership in all current and emerging areas of teaching, learning and technologies. Our work supports faculty, staff and students, and includes all phases of learning design, development and evaluation in both credit and non-credit lifelong learning. Through a spirit of continuous improvement, the Learning Design and Technologies unit is dedicated to creating high quality learning experiences through the application of current research and best practices in the field of teaching and learning.
