She also spoke about her use of the Canvas learning management system, assessing student learning when she presents material via social media–or when students share material with each other, and several practical tips for using technology to enhance students’ learning.

She began teaching at UD that fall and has garnered a reputation as one of the most enthusiastic teachers students will encounter. She is continually looking for ways to engage her students with the course material in her marketing classes. She was also one of the “early adopters” for teaching marketing classes that focus on Internet applications. Because of her use of technology, personally and professionally, she brings a unique perspective to her teaching and is a “natural” at mentoring other faculty in innovative uses of technology for student engagement and learning outcomes.
