To successfully leverage the educational promise of rapidly changing mobile devices and connectivity, colleges and universities must move as quickly as the technology.
I am the Associate Vice President for Academic and Data Services in the ITS division at Loyola University Chicago. In my current role, I direct all Academic & Data Service activities and oversee all project life-cycle stages for the strategic planning, design, development and implementation of academic and data technology systems, services and support across the institution. These areas include; Instructional Technology & Research Support, Data Warehouse & Business Intelligence, Web Development & Content Management, and Digital Media Services within the Information Technology Services (ITS) division. I have served in multiple capacities at Loyola for over 43 years including directing Academic Technology Support Services, Infrastructure Services, and Application Development. I have extensive experience in the use of technology in higher education, instructional technology, instructional design, and teaching. I regularly present on several technology related topics.
I serve as a member to many University committees and I’m a member of a number of professional organizations including the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU), Educause, the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM), the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), the Adobe Education Exchange, and Alpha Sigma Nu.
I hold an M.Ed. in Instructional Technology and a B.A. in Communication from Loyola University Chicago. I currently teach and have taught part time for Loyola’s Graduate School of Education, the Computer Science Department, the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, and the Quinlan School of Business at Loyola University Chicago. I have been teaching part-time regularly, 2-3 courses each year at the University since 2008 and began teaching for the University in 1997.
