Alex Rockey


Alex Rockey, PhD, is an instructional technologist instructor at Bakersfield College. Prior to joining the Renegade team, Alex worked as an instructional design consultant at CSU-Bakersfield and a graduate student researcher in instructional design at UC Davis. She graduated from UC Davis in June 2020 with a PhD in Education. Her research has focused on feedback in online STEM courses. In this work, she found that some typically conceived limitations of online courses (e.g., lack of interaction) can be reimagined as benefits with the strategic use of technology. More broadly, her interests include humanizing online education, accessibility, and mobile learning. As an educator with K-16 teaching experience, Alex has taught both high school English and Puente as well as first-year writing at the college level. Alex is passionate about the potential of online education to improve student access to high-quality educational opportunities.
