Published Article in JTATE Special Edition on Preservice and Inservice Professional Development During the COVID-19 Pandemic!!!


I am so excited to announce the acceptance and publication of our article, Professional development to improve communication and reduce the homework gap in grades 7-12 during COVID-19 transition to remote learning.

The article was written with two graduate students (Bryana Bunte & Ellen Robertson) who were enrolled in a course I teach on distance and flexible education. This was a great opportunity to be responsive to the needs of schools and teachers during this time. Working with Bryana and Ellen was great and their professionalism was outstanding in order to meet submission deadlines.

Here is the full citation for the article.

SITE 2021 Q Methodology Workshop

SITE Conference 2021: Workshop on Q Methodology


It was fun to join my research colleagues David Rutledge, Arlene Borthwick, and Brandy Walker to host a workshop at the SITE 2021 conference in March. The workshop was titled "Q Methodology as a Research Tool for Technology Infusion", and focused on how researchers could use Q methodology to investigate perspectives on the challenges facing technology integration and infusion.

The virtual workshop included use of a variety of digital tools like Jamboard, and Forms to engage participants and do some comparisons between Q methodology and traditional quantitative analysis.

NTLS 2019

The National Leadership Technology Summit (https://ntls.info) was held in Washington DC Sept. 19-20 at the headquarters of the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE). As a member of the AACTE Innovation and Technology Committee I was invited to attend and participate in a strand focused on the use of Artificial Intelligence in Teacher Education.

I was also asked to report on outcomes from the strand on TETC cases - program deep, program wide vs technology in a shrinking educational economy. I was able to share several outcomes including initial results of a Q Sort study conducted by myself, Arlene Borthwick, and David Rutledge to find out what teacher education faculty want edtec specialists to know.

Listed below are the outcomes shared at the 2019 NTLS meeting

NTLS Strand Leader

Early in the fall 2019 I was asked to co-lead a strand at the National Technology Leadership Summit (https://ntls.info/). Colleague Teresa Foulger from Arizona State University and I lead a strand titled Teacher education technology competencies cases: Program Deep, program wide vs technology in a shrinking educational economy.

This was an exciting opportunity to engage national leaders in the field of educational technology and teacher education about the various issues impacting infusion of technology throughout teacher education programs across the country.

Over the course of two days leaders explored the various issues and re-committed themselves toward technology integration and infusions within teacher education. Outcomes of the strand included a commitment to research on discovering what teacher education faculty want edtec specialists to know, and continued development of the Teacher Education Technology Competencies.

Action Steps for Addressing the Challenge of Integrating Technology in Teacher Education

The 2019 AACTE I& T Committee Pre-conference symposium focused on bringing to gather teacher education leaders to examine the actions they can take to address the change of infusing technology within teacher education. A highlight of the symposium was a panel of experts including Gary Railsback from CAEP, Andrea Whittaker from EdTPA, and Joseph South from ISTE to discuss how EPP's should address the crosscutting themes of technology infusion. The panel, along with additional breakout sessions, provided attendees with concrete action steps for addressing the issue of program deep & program wide technology infusion. The following link is to the symposium overview presentation.

ISTE Book Chapter

I am excited to have been asked to write a chapter about leadership by editors of an upcoming book focused on building capacity for technology infusion. More details to come! Draft of the chapter is due early in the summer.

Micro-Credentialing pilot grant

During the spring semester of 2019 I applied for and was awarded a IDC grant to research the implementation of a micro-credentialing system that students and I have been developing. We plan to pilot some of the micro-credentials in edtec courses and selected elementary courses in the fall 2019 semester.
