I am currently a student in a graduate level educational technology program and a full-time college librarian specializing in distance education. My long term goal is to transition to instructional design and I would like to take on some contract projects. I also am interested in speaking engagements on educational technology. If you would like to contract me for a small project or teaching engagement, please contact me.

College Educator | Librarian | Instructional Technology Specialist

A higher education generalist with over six years of experience in public and academic libraries, a year of college teaching experience, and an emerging educational technology specialist.  I'm looking to build my portfolio with contract work in instructional technology and web design.  I live and work in the Chattanooga, TN area.

Introduction

sethallenI love learning and facilitating the learning process for others. I am looking for opportunities to use my background in libraries, instructional technology, and/or teaching to make an impact on peoples' lives. I believe in working smarter (not necessarily harder) and looking for non-conventional approaches to solve problems.

I have began to delve into instructional technology and I'm learning the ropes of college level teaching. I have a B.A. in Spanish and Sociology, an MLIS in Library and Information Studies and 24 graduate credit hours in sociology. I have begun a graduate certificate in educational media to round out my preparation. My ideal job would combine my passion for technology in the classroom, the social sciences, and librarianship.

Specialties: Library leadership,information literacy instruction, basic web design, academic research, information literacy instruction, college-level teaching, using technology in the classroom, web-'mastering', organizational planning, vision casting in higher education.
