Jennifer is also the Managing Editor of Academic Commons (www.academiccommons.org), a recently-launched online resource aiming to share knowledge, develop collaborations, and evaluate and disseminate digital tools and innovative practices for teaching and learning with technology. Jennifer has an M.A.
