As an Instructional Consultant in Instructional Development, I work directly with professors and graduate students to enrich the teaching and learning experience at UCSB one class at a time. Apart from individual consultations with instructors, I conduct a variety of pedagogy workshops, create the TALES podcasts, and lead the annual Summer Teaching Institute for Associates. I also collaborate with instructors to conduct research on instruction in Higher Education and to develop their online and hybrid courses. Over the past 20 years I have worked as a faculty developer, teacher trainer, instructional designer and educational consultant in multiple countries. I specialize in educational technology, teaching strategies, student-centered pedagogy, course design, and education reform in developing countries
