I am deeply involved in higher education and K-12 online and blended learning modalities of instructional delivery, as well as research on their efficacy. At the K-12 level, l was part of the committee that wrote and published the Virtual Learning Program rubric adopted by NYSED (Rhode Island and Massachusetts SEAs).I worked with NYSED Office of Educational Design and Technology as a research policy intern to develop and implement K-12 online and blended learning policies, specifically Commissioner's Regulation 100.5(d)(10)--credit for online and blended courses. I also helped evaluate, monitor, and manage the Virtual (online and blended) Advanced Placement grant, and wrote some policy briefs for the NYSED Board of Regents. I also pioneered and taught a hybrid research course to high school students at Stony Brook University (SBU). At the higher education level, I have taught online and blended courses for the past six years. I was a recipient of SUNY IITG grant to build open online and blended Japanese and Korean courses. I have an article published on online and blended learning in Computers & Education Journal, and have several working papers.
