I'M A SCHOLAR PRACTITIONER HELPING TO IMPROVE FACULTY DEVELOPMENT AND EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION BY USING ACTION RESEARCH METHODOLOGIES.
At Boston University's Center for Teaching & Learning, I lead the production of individualized consultations, presentations, workshops, seminars, and institutes designed to promote reflection and experimentation in teaching, including the use of educational technologies.
