Summary Letter for FY 2017: 

This has been a year of growth and challenge for me. During the year past I had over seventy brief consultations with faculty members. Major projects I worked on included the Guided Pathways Project and Peg Raiford’s online testing tutorial. I did a lot of research for the Faculty Institute on visual literacy and educational doodling we are supposed to do in FY 2017 and did a lot of research on new educational technologies. In my role as lead ID for the Summer 2016 Faculty Institute on open educational resources I did a lot of research and other work.

During the fiscal year just past I completed 31.5 hours of professional development and carried 304.6 banked hours over from FY 2015. The highlight of my professional development was attending the South by Southwest Educational Conference in March 2016. I also took the EAC Visual Data training so I could use the Blackboard data analytics tool.

I look forward to an exciting year of growth and opportunity in FY 2017.

Goals for FY 2017:

  1. Continue to support Student Success Initiative.
  2. Continue to support cultural competency initiatives at ACC.
  3. Continue to work with IDS and faculty to complete Guided Pathways Project.
  4. Finish research for Faculty Institute on visual literacy and educational doodling.
