I teach a general education quantitative literacy course for non-STEM majors, so I work mainly with freshman and students who often dislike math. I am interested in mathematical modeling, real world applications of mathematics, utilizing technology to assist in problem solving, sustainability, first year and transfer student success, metacognition and mindfulness. I love to continually improve my course and learn about new technologies that can help me accomplish my goals. The technology I use most to improve my content delivery and communication is AsULearn (Moodle). I use a variety of tools in AsULearn such as VoiceThread, the workshop tool and Zoom. Also, I have recently been exploring new interactive and collaborative technologies, such as Glisser and H5P, to make presentations in class more interactive and engaging.
