In addition to research and teaching, I enjoy contributing to my campus and disciplinary communities. This has involved assisting faculty who want to integrate technology in their courses, acting as a mentor to early-career instructors, serving on committees, reviewing for journals, and working as the Webinar Co-Chair for the Global Society for Online Literacy Educators. In all of these arenas, I place a high value on interdisciplinary collaboration.

FACULTY DEVELOPMENT & SUPPORT EXPERIENCE
University Writing Program, UC Davis, September 2011 – June 2015
Our team developed, piloted, and implemented hybrid and online versions of UC Davis’ ten-week first-year composition course. We also instigated a training program for first-time instructors and a formal assessment of the program.

In response to campus interest in an “online hub” to support hybrid and online teaching and learning, our team researched existing resources and wrote a report recommending next steps for the Vice Chancellor of Undergraduate Education. The report included a literature review, site map, and demo site.
