Mentoring

As a faculty member at a research university, I am proud to be able to serve on doctoral committees for our students. I have served on several committees to date, ranging from educational technology to computer science to educational leadership to higher education administration. All of the committees I serve on generally have a flair for educational technology.

As a mentor, it is my responsibility to guide you through the scholarly process from taking the right courses to ensure you have the right knowledge and skills, to working on research projects while you are a doctoral student, to assisting you with the right readings for your qualifying exams, to helping shape your dissertation, and to assist you in identifying a placement that is appropriate for you.

I take the role of mentorship very seriously in my role as an academic. My mentor was Dr. Ann E. Barron, a Professor of Instructional Technology at the University of South Florida. My scholarly ancestors can be observed in the picture below dating back to the 1800s. You can see my academic lineage has been traced all the way back to pioneers like Dr. Wilhem Wundt or Dr. E. L. Thorndike.
