I used to advise CDIT students at SUNY Albany! So nice to see people from SUNY Albany, a place that is so dear to my heart.
I am enjoying the CDIT program very much. Like you, I am interested in the theories and research-based practices of online teaching and learning. I appreciate that I am learning all about them in the CDIT program.
Nice to meet you!
Greetings from Houston!
Here is a little bit about me:)
I am executive director of instruction and faculty development at the University of Houston Downtown's Marilyn Davies College of Business. I began teaching online in 2007 when I was a graduate student at SUNY Albany. This is also when I started delving into the theories and research-based practices of online teaching and learning. In my current position, I am having a hard time finding the time for research and publication, and would love to get back to it again soon. I am open to new collaborations and writing and research partnerships.
I also would like to see what cool things other institutions are doing with online education. Since beginning teaching online in 2007, I have experienced online teaching and learning (as an instructor) at 4 universities: SUNY Albany, UMass Boston, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Lamar University (TX). Currently, at UHD, I am not teaching but I am coordinating online classes and identifying faculty development needs. Prior to my current position, I was assistant professor of teacher education at Lamar University, where I developed the fully online preparation program for ESL teacher certification.
I am excited to connect with old friends (Thanks Alexandra for inviting me to this community) and make new ones while learning more about online teaching!
Hi to Everyone!
I'm Roxann from Connecticut, an educational learning designer, where I presently am an online learning design experience LXD, coach on the Novo Ed, next gen LMS platform. My e-Learning Instructional Design formal ed is UW. In Fairfield, CT, a private university, Fairfield U in CT, my tenure was as a library technology specialist and before that, Coordinator of Technology at a private high school.
I am quite familiar with online learning from three perspectives, a learner, an instructor and a e-learning experience coach. I am currently writing a micro-course module on mindful experiences for professionals and non-traditional professionals. My MBSR training will begin at Yale University in April. I also have experience in writing immersive 360-VR webinars for Educuase/NERCOMP.
You can find me participating weekly in the Future Trends forum hosted by Bryan Alexander, where you can see me weekly on the Shindig platform.
Wearing all three hats, has indeed, given me unique perspectives on the importance of designing relative and engaging courses. I am happy to be here in this amazing COTE forum!!! I hope to contribute and also learn from everyone :)
It is an honor to be here with all of you.
My areas of research interest are in professional and student agency, learning analytics, mindfulness in HE, and immersive 360/VR in HE
Hello every one,
My name is Shatha. I live in Tuscaloosa in Alabama. I am a graduate student in the educational technology program, and hopefully I will graduate this semester in May. My enrollment in a full online program grasped my interest in understanding how instructors can design an effective unique teaching, and overcome learning challenges that students may encounter through the course. My intention is to join the instructional design field to provide instructors with ideas and skills to help their students succeed. By joining this community, I believe I will learn more about the field for a better development of a successful learning environment for future students.
My name is Veronika Dolar and I am an assistant professor of Economics at SUNY Old Westbury. I joined the department of Politics, Economics, and Law this past fall and this is my second semester in the SUNY system. This spring I am also teaching my first fully online course and I really enjoy the experience. It is a lot of work, but I think it makes me think a bit more carefully about how and what I teach and has also enhanced my face-to-face teaching.
I am a big supporter of Open Educational Resources (OER) in order to make my online courses even more accessible to my students.
I am really looking forward to learning more about successful online pedagogy and share my own experiences.
