Biography

Marisol Clark-Ibáñez, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at California State University San Marcos. She is currently the eLearning Factuly Fellow for the 2006-2007 academic year. She helps faculty become even better teachers with their goals of improving their students’ learning. This approach requires activities and communication at three levels that involve understanding faculty needs, facilitating communication among concerned groups, and finding and disseminating solutions that draw upon local and external knowledge bases. One main interest I will wish to work on through out my tenure as the EL-FF is assessment. How do we know what works and does not in terms of student learning and technology? How are we currently measuring success in the technology and learning environment? What other models are out there? How can we apply them to the mission and pedagogy we value at CSUSM? These are questions I would like to answer through reading peer-reviewed research, discussions with colleagues, and attending conferences on the topic., Dr. Clark-Ibáñez has published in the areas of childhoods, social relationships, urban schooling, classroom micro-interactions, and qualitative methodology. She received her doctorate from University of California, Davis in 2003.
