Teaching recognition

In 2014, I achieved a career-long goal and was awarded the Association for Information Science and Technology Thomson Reuters Outstanding Information Science Teacher Award.

I received the Florida State University School of Information Graduate Faculty Teaching Award in 2016, and the College of Information Outstanding Faculty Award in 2004. Both are student-selected.

I was recognized for Transformation Through Teaching in 2013 via FSU's Spiritual Life Project.

I received a Leadership Award from the FSU-CCI Leadership Board in 2013.

I have been consistently nominated by my students for the Florida State University graduate teaching award: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2014...and so forth.

I have consistently earned 90% or greater on the "overall effectiveness of instructor" item on FSU's standard course evaluation.

ASIS&T Webinar

Another miscellaneously archival thing I'm leaving on here for your amusement: July 2011, I led a webinar sponsored by ASIS&T SIG-ED and ALISE SIG-DE: "Transforming our e-learning 'worst practices' into excellent teaching." I asked participants to attend prepared to share failures and subsequent fixes for them, or intractable e-learning problems with broad reach and offered to share my slides.
