Ed.D in Instructional Technology and Distance Education

I am an international educator who grew up overseas and have lived in Indonesia, Australia, Qatar and the Philippines. My background is in the Social Sciences but I have a deep passion for technology and how it interfaces with all subject areas and education generally. I believe in innovation, sound pedagogy and data driven evolution of practice. I have recently completed my Ed.D with my research focusing on instructional technology and distance education. I have been a IT Coordinator and Integrator for the past seven years and a teacher for 12. As an educator I try to practice what I preach in being a learner myself and place value in the discovery and investigation at the heart of the endeavors I undertake.
