Over the past several years I have designed and offered several courses centering on the intersections of technology and culture in the humanities.
Practicum in Blended and Online Learning
A 3cr. graduate course providing students an opportunity to study online and hybrid learning models and apply them to a course of their choice. Students work with a faculty member and develop the structure and sample modules for their course. This course is taught each fall semester. Recent syllabus from FS17
