Hi-thanks for checking out my bio. Welcome 💚. I approach my work from a critical instructional design perspective which includes critical digital pedagogy + digital scholarship + social justice + open pedagogy + care. I look forward to collaborating with you!
Some of the greats that I am influenced and inspired by include: bell hooks, Paulo Freire, Kimberle Crenshaw, Maha Bali, Robin DeRosa, Sarah Rose Cavanaugh, Jesse Stommel, and Sean Michael Morris.
About Instructional Design
We are committed to building an engaging and inclusive learning environment at JMU by consulting with instructors and programs on instructional design (ID) for courses, curricula, and learning initiatives.
As instructional designers, our practices are informed by learning sciences, systems thinking, and pedagogy-driven community building. Centering equity, accessibility, and inclusion, we support instruction, learning, and scholarly work by providing instructional design solutions to enhance and sustain learners’ success. Our work simultaneously holds space to explore evidence-based emerging teaching and learning trends, tools, and methods while centering an ethic of care and a learner-centered experience.
