I joined the Center for Distributed Learning at UCF as a full-time instructional designer in November 2016. Before joining CDL, I spent more than 15 years teaching courses in the humanities at several colleges, including DeVry University, Valencia College, and Seminole State College. I earned a bachelor’s degree in humanities at New College of Florida in 1991 and, four years later, a master’s of liberal studies degree at Rollins College. In 2013, I received her PhD in Education (Instructional System Design) from UCF. My research interests include social media and online learning, second language acquisition and immersion through technology, and mobile learning.
