Biography

I have been a project manager, instructional designer, technical writer, course instructor, textbook contributor (Clinical Chemistry), and workshop presenter throughout my varied career. I and a faculty member were nominated for the Gertrude M. Cox Award in 2009 for œinnovative excellence in teaching & learning with technology for a Spanish II class, and I was also the project manager and instructional designer for the winner that year, for a course in Food Science. I have given numerous workshops through the years on many topics, but most recently on œWeb 2.0: Uses in Teaching and Learning,which I have presented multiple times over the past few years as part of the NCSUs Workshops & Seminars series. I am also the Manager for the IDEA Grants program at NCSU, which supports faculty with funds and in-depth support for putting courses online for the distance education program. One of our special interests is developing online courses, which have a lab component. We have developed all or part of 14 different courses with labs over the last several years.

I have a science background, which has helped in the development of online labs. I have a B.S.M.T. in Medical Technology and was board certified in Hematology. I have two M.S. degrees. The first in 1975 in Plant Physiology, and for my research, I received the œOutstanding Graduate Research Paper award from my professional society. My second degree came in 2007 in Technical Communication where I received the NCSU/CHASS Graduate Research Award. I was also inducted into Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society in 2006. While the Education Director for the School of Medical Technology in Raleigh (1978-83), I was the recipient of a Burroughs-Wellcome Fund research grant for the development of audiovisual instructional media (using 35mm slides and a Kodak Caramate!).
