I’m a situativity theorist and phenomenologist in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Minnesota. My work focuses on humanizing technology design in online learning, personal learning environments, and workplace learning. My current research applies post-intentional phenomenology to better understand lived experiences in distance learning. My future work will extend the research on connectedness to communities of practice.

I teach foundational courses in instructional design, distance education, online learning communities, and computer applications for business and education. My background is in instructional design, specializing in e-learning in business and industry including finance, defense, healthcare, and energy sectors.
