I am the Instructional Design Librarian at the Consortium Library (University of Alaska Anchorage). I earned my MLIS (Master of Library and Information Studies) from University of Alabama in 2011. My passion for teaching and education led me to University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Master of Education Online Innovation and Design (M.Ed. ONID) program (graduating May 2018). I enjoy bringing my knowledge of teaching and learning to my colleagues and my own work.
In addition to learning new things, I enjoy spending time with my son, partner, and our dogs, gardening, riding motorcycles, camping, fishing, and traveling (especially to warm locales!).
Purpose and Content
I’ve created this blog and website to serve as a central academic and professional home for myself on the web. I use it to keep track of my own activities and thoughts, while also allowing others to see what I’ve been working on. Over time, you are likely find posts here that relate to:
- Academic librarianship
- Higher education
- Open educational resources (OER)
- Instructional design
- Technology in education
