This website was created to provide information about my professional and academic endeavors.

With a rich and extensive background in pioneering educational advancements, I’ve traversed the realms of academia as both a dedicated researcher and an impassioned educator.

At present, I proudly serve as the Vice Provost of Learning Innovation at Illinois Tech (IIT), in Chicago.¬† In my journey, I’ve assumed pivotal roles, including, more recently, as Assistant Vice-Chancellor of Enterprise Learning Innovation at Northeastern University, Boston. Before that, I spent more than twenty years at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I retired as Chief Learning Officer at Gies College of Business, and as Research Associate Professor in the College of Education.

My unwavering commitment has revolved around the realm of educational innovations, where I’ve harnessed the power of technology to amplify learning opportunities and broaden access, leading the charge in crafting online degree programs and MOOC-based initiatives. My expertise as an instructional designer has led me to explore the dynamic interplay between learning designs in novel settings, with a particular focus on adult education and development. My research findings have made significant contributions to both national and international publications. My academic credentials include a Master’s in Education and a Ph.D. in Human Resource Development.

My motto:

“In everything do to others as you would have them do to you”¬†(Mathew 7:12)
