I joined the USM staff in 1984 as Associate Director of Media Services, now Instructional Technology and Media Services. My office was predominately in Bailey Hall on the Gorham campus but I spent many hours on the Portland and LAC campuses as well.
While in this position, I built the video collection with input from the faculty and maintained it until I retired from USM in December, 2012. I was also involved in conducting instructional workshops for faculty that included Blackboard, PowerPoint, and Dreamweaver.
When Instructional Technology and Media services became part of University Libraries and the associate director’s position was phased out, I was happy to join the Center for Teaching Enhanced Learning as a learning designer.
I am now living in Sarasota, Florida with my husband where I work contractually for CTEL as a learning designer and continue to teach an online course for the College of Education.
