Why do you teach online for the Post-Bacc program?
Online education is a nascent learning environment that has its virtues, but also presents a unique and unfamiliar array of challenges to traditional educators. Teaching online courses and addressing these issues now will make me a more effective educator in the future as online programs become more widespread.
What do you like to do outside of CU?
When I'm not doing math or Computer Science, I play guitar.
