Hello and welcome to my portfolio! This website catalogues my journey through the Instructional Technology (ITEC) master's program. As a technical support person in the department of Educational Technology here at Kent State University, I enrolled in the ITEC program in order to gain a better understanding of the educational principles behind the technology I support on a daily basis. Two years later my course work is complete. I firmly believe that I have achieved my goal. I have learned much in terms of instructional design, using technology as an educational tool, and managing technological changes.
One of the most important lessons that I have learned in this program is that in order to be an effective educator/integrator of technology, pedagogical approaches may change as quickly as technological advances. Even with degree in hand, my education is only beginning.
