I am the Assistant Dean of the Applied Language Institute at the University of Missouri Kansas City with expertise in curriculum and instructional design, faculty development, English language teaching, instructional technology, qualitative research, and global initiatives.  I believe a healthy balance of these areas contribute to the development of traditional, blended, and online ESL and teacher education programs through research-informed practices.  As a researcher, I am contributing to the teaching and learning community by investigating more deeply into professional and culture learning of teachers and their online communities of practice. If you are interested in learning more about my professional background, I encourage you to explore this site.
