Speaking & Presentations

I love “getting my geek on” and sharing elements of the field with as many folks who are interested or would listen.  I present on a variety of topics, including:

  • Growing online programs from marketing through graduation
  • Financial modeling for online learning
  • Different models of online programs across institutions
  • Newer ed tech models & implications for higher ed
  • Transforming Instructional Design to Learning Experience Design
  • Creating systems and processes – project management for growth
  • Building teams and creating a culture of innovation

Find some examples below.  If you’re interested in having me as a speaker at your conference or event, please find my rate card below.
