I am interested in the position of Principal Instructional Technology Consultant because I believe my career experiences reflect an appreciation of the mission of the CITL, which aims to “provides leadership and expertise that support efforts to innovate in the curricula, to implement effective pedagogies in and beyond the classroom, and to enhance student learning and engagement”. My philosophy of instructional consulting hinges supporting faculty in developing student-centered learning experiences through activities and technologies that encourage collaboration, critical thinking, innovation, creativity, educational entrepreneurship and a life-long zeal for the process of learning and improving human performance. I seek to promote, as well as train others to foster strong learning communities within each class by encouraging critical engagement with ideas, beliefs, and pedagogies in the local, national and global contexts. My experiences in the classroom as well as in faculty development have helped inform my research in the area of the scholarship of teaching and learning.
