Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness Solutions


I have confidence in the power of positive change and continuous improvement. We can always, always improve. When we assess, we document and capture important reflections, make deeper connections, and learn ways to advance. In this way, we can all work smarter and not harder.


Resilience, tenacity, and courage are themes that must be shared with others. As a professor, higher-education assessment leader, and ed-venturer, I enjoy teaching and also learning what others in the field of online instruction, assessment, and institutional effectiveness are doing. I choose to pay this forward by mentoring others.
