I am the director of the Teaching and Learning Center and a member of the doctoral faculty at the CUNY Graduate Center. Trained as a historian, I wrote a dissertation about the discourse around American adolescence in the years following World War II. My current research interests include college-level pedagogy, educational technology, open education, and critical university studies.
I design institutes, teach workshops and interdisciplinary courses, and teach and advise students in the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Certificate Program and the M.A. Program in Digital Humanities. I direct the STEM Pedagogy Institute, co-direct the CUNY Humanities Alliance, and serve as Director of Community Projects for the CUNY Academic Commons.
I previously directed the Center for Teaching and Learning at Baruch College, where I designed the college’s hybrid course development initiative, directed two open source software projects: Blogs@Baruch and Vocat, and taught courses in US History. I also worked with the American Social History Project/Center for History and New Media from 1999-2003, where I built Virtual New York City and contributed to the September 11 Digital Archive.
From 2012-2022, I was a member of the editorial collective that oversees the Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy. I have contributed essays to Matthew K. Gold’s Debates in the Digital Humanities and, with Thomas Harbison, to Jack Dougherty and Kristen Nawrotzki’s Writing History in the Digital Age.
