The Presentations

Over the last 18 months, I presented aspects of my research a number of times for diverse audiences including

  • Undergraduate, graduate, and professional classes;
  • Administrative groups tasked with program-level curriculum design, general education and the quality enhancement plan (QEP) development and oversight;
  • Scholarly conferences focused on issues educational technology, digital pedagogy, and higher education assessment.

With each presentation I tackled my thinking from a slightly different angle.  Sometimes they were well received and I felt like I said what I needed to say. Other times, not so much. Here they are in reverse chronological order.
