Educational Specialist | ACU

I am currently an Educational Technology Specialist for Abilene Christian University. I work in the Innovation Foundry, inside the ACU Library. As an Educational Technology (EdTech) Specialist, I provide high level support and coordination with the EdTech Director and staff for various projects, technologies, training, and workshop sessions. This includes the management and coordination of all content, promotion, and training involved with Digital Commons @ ACU (DC@ACU). I also provide technical assistance for Special Collections and Archives (SC&A) as they create, use, and store digital files created from archival analog media.

A lot of the things I do are shared internally at ACU. However, I wanted to at least provide you with some of the titles for the teaching and training sessions I have helped with or lead. If you notice – Canvas Module Created – after a title, I have also created an ACU Canvas Module for the specific teaching or training given for ACU Faculty to pull the Canvas Module into for the course they are teaching.
