In both advisory and educator roles, my mission is cultivating human potential. With a "Rational Fieldmarshal" (ENTJ) temperament, I'm particularly interested in making education work. My priorities: making learning engaging and market-relevant and making it accessible.
I engage in research and development and obtain student and peer feedback on course design, content and methodology on an ongoing basis. Recent training includes an AVID for Higher Education (AHE) Practicum and 21st Century Employability Skills Facilitation Certification. I'm also keenly interested in understanding and cultivating the life skills that contribute to student success over the long-term.
I've been a member of Mendocino College's Business faculty for over 4 years. Classes taught include Introductory Business, Business Communications, Green Business, Entrepreneurship, Marketing and Human Resource Management. I'm currently teaching Business Communications Skills for Management and Human Resource Management, both online using the Canvas learning management system.
I joined the Social & Behavioral Sciences faculty of Saddleback College in the Summer of 2017. I teach Principles of Macroeconomics and Principles of Microeconomics online using Canvas. I'm participating in the college's Open Education Resources (OER) Exploration & Adoption Grant and will be developing a zero textbook cost (ZTC) course option for Fall 2018. I'm an active member of the AHE Peer Academy and will be sharing my experience modifying tools and techniques for the online environment at our next session. I'm also participating in the college's 10-week Online Educator Certification program.
