I am an Assistant VP of Academics and Associate Professor of education. I have graduate degrees in curriculum and instruction, humanities / interdisciplinary studies, and instructional technology. My writing, consulting and speaking focuses upon futures in education, educational innovation & entrepreneurship, self-directed learning & human agency, blended & online learning, alternative models of education, and the intersection of education & digital culture. My dream is to create and run an educational equivalent of what Thomas Edison did in Menlo Labs. As such, I am the founder of Birdhouse Learning Labs where we are on a mission to support, celebrate and create unconventional solutions to education’s greatest challenges.
