Hi! I’m Amy.
I am an equity and access-focused online learning leader with 20 years of experience leading learning design, student coaching, and academic consultant teams to provide holistic and innovative strategies and support for adult learners in and out of the classroom.
I began working in online education as an instructional designer and quickly became interested in how learners adapted to the affordances of technologies. My work experience evolved to encompass the learners’ experiences both inside and outside of the classroom which allowed me to see first-hand how pedagogical affordances and constraints could affect learning. These experiences led me study of the effects of asynchrony and telepresence in learning. By examining the motivation, interaction, relationships, and affect in online and synchronous hybrid learning, I have focused on how technologies are affecting peer learning.
