In case you missed it, the Learning Technologies team has grown!
Over the summer, Sara Frizelle came aboard as the new E-Learning Specialist at UW Bothell. She comes to us from Everett Community College where she was the Director of eLearning & Instructional Design. As Director, she worked collaboratively with faculty across all academic departments to provide assistance in the development of online, hybrid courses and web-enhanced courses. Sara was also responsible for researching, implementing and supporting various eLearning tools such as the Learning Management System, Tegrity, Blackboard Connect, Quality Matters, SoftChalk, Respondus and Jing.
Her position at EVCC also included mentoring faculty on teaching and learning pedagogy and she also had a hand in the creation of innovative classroom and community spaces on campus. Outside her role as Director, Sara was an associate faculty in the Education department, where she hybridized and taught the Introduction to Education course.
Sara is currently a doctoral student at The University of Washington Seattle in Learning Sciences, where she is focusing her attention on how institutional policy and institutional structures affect teaching and learning and faculty professional development.
Sara will help expand Learning Technologies’ mission of enhancing teaching and learning, both online and on campus. She will work with faculty and students, focusing on developing effective instructional and learning strategies for eLearning including hybrid learning, online courses, web tools and more.
