What I Do
I am the Assistant Director for Instructional Technology at the Louisiana State University Law Center. I also teach courses in the College of Human Sciences and Education at Louisiana State University. I earned a doctorate in educational leadership and research with a concentration in educational technology from Louisiana State University.
My community, university, and professional service keeps me busy. I serve on the Board of Directors at the Louisiana Partnership for Children and Families. I also serve as Co-Chair of the Advisory Board for the School of Library and Information Science and as a peer reviewer for Codex, the Journal of the Louisiana Chapter of the ACRL. I am involved in a variety of campus committees including the LSU Learning and Teaching Collaborative, Academic Technology Committee, IT Governance Committee, Academic Technologies Advisory Committee, and in the Faculty Senate. I also serve on the Education Committee for the Computing Services Special Interest Section for the American Association of Law Libraries as well as the LOUIS Louisiana Library Digital Accessibility Working Group.
I love teaching! I have designed and taught several classes in the last few years. In Introduction to Classroom Technology (ELRC 2507), my undergraduate students and I create professional websites, use Creative Commons licenses to share content, and use digital storytelling for educational purposes. In Information Literacy Instruction (LIS 7807), online graduate students in the Library and Information Science program use systematic instructional design to help library patrons with information needs. In Design and Development of Multimedia Units (ELRC 7505), online graduate students develop multimedia for learning scenarios. I have also taught Program Evaluation (CIED 7355) in the College of Education at Sam Houston State University.
My family and I live in Baton Rouge, LA. We love to travel together and are always making plans to do so. But I also enjoy watching films when I can and swimming as much as possible.
