I have been in the field of online education for more than three years and have presented twenty conference presentations in this area. As the Director of Research for Oregon State University Ecampus, I design and conduct research studies on online teaching and learning, provide support for faculty research on online education, and produce tools to promote research literacy. I also direct the Research Fellows Program for faculty and I am the editor of a yearly white paper series. I have been involved in developing and maintaining the Online Learning Efficacy Database which was awarded an Effective Practice Award from OLC. I have also co-authored two research reports on the topics of instructional designers' engagement in research and student device preferences.
