Future of the University as a Design Problem
How do we respond to this moment of intense transformation in higher education? How do we move from disruption to design?
I am involved in several initiatives related to the future of the University, including Georgetown's Visioning and Design process. Last spring I co-taught a course with Ann Pendleton-Jullian on "The Future of the University as a Design Problem."
Making Student Learning Visible
I have worked on many projects focused on making student learning visible. From 2000-2007, the Visible Knowledge Project; from 2009-2012 the Social Pedagogies Project. Most recently I have worked served as a Senior Researcher or Facilitator on two national projects: Connect to Learning (e-portfolios, engagement and student success) and the Elon Research Seminar on Writing Transfer.
For 13 years I served as the Founding Executive Director of the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS) at Georgetown, where I continue to be a Senior Scholar for Pedagogical Research. My day job now is Vice Provost for Education.
I am also a past president (2011) of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL) and a Senior Scholar with the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U).
