Currently the Community College of Baltimore County's Radiography Program Director within the School of Health Professions, I integrate technology into pedagogy at every level. With the Radiography Program and also as an adjunct for the English department, I have developed and delivered face-to-face classes with technology integration, as well as blended and completely online courses.
I pioneered the first ever CCBC mobile tablet classroom, and I present my methodologies and suggestions to fellow faculty and staff at CCBC professional development events. I chair the School of Health Professions Technology Committee, and I am a member of the CCBC IT Council and Committee on Emerging and Responsible Technology. Moreover, I employ a variety of technology in the classroom including mobile apps for content and group participation, lecture capture, the flipped classroom approach, interactive audience participation software, e-textbooks, activites inside of our learning management system, and delivering publisher content inside the LMS, and others.
In addition, I developed and maintain the Radiography Facebook page and Twitter accounts. We started a program YouTube Channel to house various program videos, including student-lead projects for laboratory simulation. I am also developing content for the School of Health Professions' interdisciplinary health science simulations.
My other duties are administrative in nature as program director. I oversee a staff of 3 full time faculty and 10 adjuncts. My areas of focus have been student success, professional development, maintaining programmatic accreditation, instructional technology, and career-readiness for our students and graduates.
Transferring from my prior career as a medical imaging professional into a community college faculty member and administrator has been easy due to my passion for infusing technology into education. Radiography program graduates will be handling sensitive and expensive pieces of medical technology, and I help to get them ready to be able to face any piece of technology that they may encounter in the future.
