As an administrator in higher education, I am also interested in interdisciplinary conversations related to faculty development, digital and online pedagogy, and undergraduate and graduate student professional development.
As an active member of the Association for Authentic, Experiential, Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL), I led efforts to create a Digital Ethics Task Force. This Task Force reviews research relevant to digital ethics and ePortfolio practice in order to develop recommendations for program administrators, educators, and ePortfolio creators. Check out the AAEEBL Digital Ethics Principles, version 1.
In addition to these more involved roles, I am a member of the following professional organizations:
The Conference on College Composition and Communication
The Council of Writing Program Administrators
I have held several roles within the Global Society of Online Literacy Educators (GSOLE): affiliates liaison, Executive At-Large Board Member, committee member, and co-chair. I am currently co-chairing the Certification Committee and administering the Basic OLI Certification program, which professionalizes online teachers, tutors, and administrators in the foundations of online literacy instruction. Read more about the Basic OLI Certification program.
The Association for Writing across the Curriculum (AWAC) supports faculty and program administrators as they prepare students to become effective communicators within their disciplinary communities. I currently co-chair the Mentoring Committee, which provides opportunities for free professional development by hosting virtual workshops and connecting new WAC professionals with experts in the field.
As a member of the Rhetoric Composition and Writing Studies disciplinary community, I enjoy working with my colleagues from across the globe to forward important conversations about writing program administration, writing across the curriculum, online learning, and digital pedagogy.
HIPs in the States is a community of faculty, staff, and administrators who support the delivery of high-impact practices (HIPs). HIPs are active learning practices that are shown to promote student engagement, retention, and growth. With this community, I have lead workshops and webinars with this organization and currently serve as a Track Coordinator for their conference, which takes place as part of IIPUI's Assessment Institute.
