Writings and Publications

My writings on technology, teaching and learning are generally known for their strategic and practical value.  As a regular contributor to the Syllabus Magazine (now  Campus Technology) for over 15 years during the early years of online learning, many seminal topics have been revisited over the years.  Also, I have had the pleasure of working with many colleagues, editing and writing publications for many higher education organizations including EDUCAUSE,  SCUP, the League for Innovation and Information Science References.

Early Writings for Faculty Teaching Online
