I am a connector of people and ideas and collaboration is my favorite word. This is true in life and learning. As a Teaching and Learning Strategist with Education Services with the University Libraries at the University at Buffalo, I conduct research regarding innovative digital pedagogy to assist students, faculty, and other stakeholders to explore and implement established and emerging technologies to support teaching and learning. I also lead the State University of New York (SUNY) Exploring Emerging Technologies for Lifelong Learning and Success (#EmTechMOOC) global learning opportunity to help create 21st-century citizens equipped for today's technology-driven society ( http://suny.edu/emtech ).
Past awards and honors include a SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Professional Service, a SUNY Faculty Advisory Council on Teaching and Technology (FACT2) Excellence in Instructional Support award, and three Open SUNY Effective Practice Awards.
