I have been a part-time faculty member for 11 years at Western Michigan University School of Communication, Haworth College of Business, and at Kalamazoo Valley Community College for seven years. My teaching assignments include public speaking, desktop publishing and graphic design, public relations and marketing, interpersonal communication, nonverbal communication, business and communication writing, and social media.
I am proficient in Adobe Creative Suite InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Adobe Acrobat Pro and incorporate AP Style writing and editing, typography, graphic elements, text manipulation, image and photo manipulation, content organization and readability, color selection and prepress packaging, and print and electronic distribution into my teaching. With newer software versions I have added relevant content in electronic publishing interactivity, photobook, distribution, e-readers, and digital printing processes.
I am elearning certified and have used various learning portals, computer-based training, and course management systems such as Moodle, Desire2Learn, elearning/Blackboard, and currently use a shared-course curriculum through Cengage Learning’s Aplia.
I personally developed a social media audience for more than 1000 alumni at Western Michigan University on LinkedIn, and am a proficient user of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype, and other online communication sources.
