I am a former K12 teacher who has been a professor of educational technology and teacher educator at California State University, Fullerton since 1999. Five of these years I served as the Director of Distance Education at CSUF. I co-direct an online Masters in Educational Technology (http://bit.ly/csufedt). I am the author of numerous articles and books, as well as a presenter, on the integration of educational technology, instructional design, and online distance education. My latest books include Security vs. Access: Balancing Safety and Productivity in the Digital School (Robinson, Brown & Green, ISTE), The Essentials of Instructional Design: Connecting Fundamental Principles with Process and Practice (Brown & Green, Routledte), and Making Change: Creating a 21st Century Teaching and Learning Environment (Shell Education). I am passionate about working with schools and districts on visioning and implementing technology initiatives. I regularly consult with and provide professional development to schools and districts. I received my PhD in Instructional Systems Technology from Indiana University.
