HIGHER EDUCATION,
STUDENT AFFAIRS,
AND COLLEGE STUDENT LEARNING
WITH A TECH TWIST

Thanks for taking the time to look at some of my work! I have a unique background with over 20 years of professional and teaching experience in higher education paired with my current work in the EdTech sector. I’m passionate about teaching and learning and how one can utilize curricular approaches to promote holistic student learning both inside and outside the classroom. As with everything I do, it comes with a twist: leveraging technology and utilizing innovative approaches to enhance our work. As education further experiences digital disruption, I hope to aid others in navigating a transformation and re-imagining of student affairs and higher education for the next generation of students.

I am an independent speaker, consultant, and educator on a wide variety of topics impacting colleges and universities and their students. In particular, I’ve carved out an expertise in:

  • Understanding how digital disruption is impacting the fields of higher education and student affairs as well as the professionals working within them.
  • Residential curriculum and curricular approaches–helping residence life and student affairs departments and divisions borrow from techniques and principles utilized in the classroom to reimagine their role and offerings for students.
  • Improving residence life and education practice through external review, consulting, and workshops

Learn about my speaking, workshops, and external review services.

Over the past decade, I’ve had the privilege to speak at and consult with many institutions, student audiences, and professional associations both nationally and internationally.  With my experience teaching in the college classroom and in running student and professional staff training programs, I have developed numerous interactive multimedia presentations on a number of topics. My doctoral research on digital technology’s impact on higher education and its students informs how I conceptualize the type of change needed in our work to make it modern and relevant.

Many people know me most for my multi-day workshops on residential curriculum and curricular approaches or for my keynotes on digital and social technology in higher education.  If you’re interested, please reach out below. I’m happy to help in any way, whether you do a formal workshop or not. I love learning with and alongside others.
