My current research interests are in two areas. The first is the impact of using augmented reality technologies in educational settings and the second is the design and implementation of distributed learning environments where students are creating rather than consuming content. I have taught ITC 5990 (Internship), ITC 5420 (Hypermedia) and ITC 5720 (Planning for Technology). I have consulted internationally for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, worked as a Fulbright Specialist, and have consulted at every level of educational institution. I enjoy traveling and reading in my free time.
