I am currently an associate professor of instructional technology in the Reich College of Education at Appalachian State University, located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

more about me...


The focus of my teaching is the integration of technology into teaching and learning. Some themes that run throughout all of my courses include internationalization, 21st-century skills, and how technology can support collaboration.


My current research areas include mobile learning and cultural issues in online learning. One of my current research projects focuses on cross-cultural design and expectations of space and place in immersive online learning environments.


Much of my service focuses on global learning, and I am actively involved with many initiatives to incorporate global perspectives into the curriculum across our campus, as well as the entire University of North Carolina system.
