Through the years Ive created a site in Blackboard filled with resources in the field of
development and disability as well as a site for students to find employment, internships, and
scholarships.
Hosting Visitors and Guest Speakers
During my tenure on campus I have hosted international visitors and development professionals
from DC, groups from the State Department, USAID, and other agencies and I have had guest
speakers present to my courses and to the campus at large. I estimate Ive brought 200 people to
our campus where my students, faculty, and the visitors themselves, have benefitted from the
exchange. Several of the presentations I have had filmed and they are available in our library
archives for viewing.
Videos
Co-produced a video promo for Voice of America to advocate for Deaf communities in Africa.
Social Media
I manage a Facebook page for current ID students and all of our graduates where we post
interesting articles, job posting, and discuss issues.
I manage a second Facebook page with over 1,000 members sharing information about
development in the Deaf world.
Technology Used in the Classroom and in Supervision
Although, today in 2014, many of the creative uses for media I list below do not seem very
progressive, at the time I began working with them in 2006, they were. I continue to use many
of these tools today to communicate with students on internships, to share knowledge, and to do
research but I have also required students to incorporate some of them in their course projects so
they own these skills for their future employment.
