Director of Learning Programs and Initiatives


I lead the Learning Programs & Initiatives group within the University Library and represent the library on campus instruction initiatives.  In these efforts, I work collaboratively with library instructors and faculty across campus to further information literacy programs.  I lead the University Library Instruction Committees, and work collaboratively to promote information literacy on campus, develop librarians as teachers, and assess instruction/student learning. More recently, I have been engaged in several learning analytics efforts. I also teach ALA 105 - Research Methods in the Digital Library through the College of Literature, Science, and Arts. 

Current Research 

I have a variety of interests related to academic librarianship and higher education.  Currently, I am engaged in research projects focused on:

  • digital learning for information literacy
  • student learning and teaching effectiveness (Library as Research Lab, IMLS Grant RE-95-17-0104-17)
  • library analytics and learning analytics (Library Learning Analytics Project, IMLS Grant LG-96-18-0040-18)
