I have been a full-time faculty member at Bakersfield College
since the Fall semester of 2001. Prior to that, I spent three years leading the college in all of its web services efforts, both internal and external.
During my almost 18 years on this campus, I have developed and taught a wide variety of classes, mostly focused on the areas of web design and web development.

A large number of courses have come and gone during my time at BC. This is simply a result of the ever-changing technology of the web. Even the courses that we have taught for a very long time change almost every time they are taught.
I have also served the college in a variety of leadership roles, many of which were connected with technology, learning and professional development.
Faculty Director - Technology, Innovation and Professional Development
Fall 2014 - Present
In this role, I have provided leadership on several campus-wide technology projects:
LMS Transition from Moodle to Canvas - Leveraging the resources provided by the OEI, BC will begin the transition to Canvas in Summer of 2016 and complete the transition in Spring of 2017
The development of campus community around technology use - The practical result of this effort is the TIPD web site which provides faculty an opportunity to communicate effective use of a variety of technologies, as well as an educational technology blog to update faculty on new developments.
A Vision for a Modern Learning Environment - While this has not yet been implemented, this white paper has informed many of our ideas and planning for the future learning environments at BC.
Substantive Change Proposal - As BC moves toward the offering of fully online degrees, I have taken a leadership role in preparing the substantive change proposal for the ACCJC.
