My pedagogy is driven by a critical perspective toward technology in learning experiences. Working with other adult learners, be they undergraduate students, k-12 teachers, higher education faculty, or other professionals, it is fundamentally important to me that the learner feel agency in their learning experience. Technology is adopted for different reasons and at different paces, I believe it is important to meet learners where they are and build together with them from there. This constructive perspective can facilitate adults having transformative learning experiences and shifting to being more self-directed in their learning technology.
Adult learners in higher education are challenged by technology rich learning environments and ways of teaching and learning with technology they may find foreign. Whether mentoring and guiding learners to balancing their educational goals with institutional expectations or facilitating 21st century skills acquisition, I invite learners to harness the potential of new and emerging technologies to appropriately consume information and affect communication.
