TMI is about various technologies that aid in the delivery of instructional materials but that also enhance and deepen the learning experience. To that end my focus is on the development of online courses and being an encouragement to other faculty who want to use learning technologies in their face-to-face classrooms or even create their own online courses.
You can call me Faculty Coordinator of TMI at Butte College, or the school's DE (Distance Education) Coordinator.
In 2012 my PHIL-018 (Eastern Religions) was chosen by Blackboard Inc. as an "exemplary course" in its Catalyst Awards program. You'll find a number of video tours of award-winning classes, including a video tour of PHIL-018.
Also in 2012 I contributed to the Instructional Technology Council's Summer Newsletter, participated in the Online Teaching Conference in San Jose (with a recorded presenation called "Closing the Loop"), and earned a badge for completing the requirements for a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) faciliated by Dr. Curtis Bonk, Professor of Instructional Systems Technology at Indiana University.
Google also awarded me a certificate for completing its Search class from Google Ed.
I'm chair of the Academic Senate's Distance Learning Committee (DLC) and serve on the campus Technology Council and the Academic Technology Committee (ATC).
