  5. 5. RESEARCH/PROFESSIONAL INTERESTS  Developing Online Instruction  “It’s important to me to consider how to engage the students in their learning and what types of activities will optimize their learning. Once I have determined what quality learning experiences to include, the next challenge is to find ways to create them within the realm of the technology resources,” says Smaldino.  Focused on the integration of technology into learning  Exploring ways in which teachers use technology  Examining how teachers make decisions about the use of technology  Investigating how teachers’ attitudes and approaches change as they become more comfortable with using technology

  7. 7. LEADER IN INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY Dr. Sharon Smaldino is a leader in the field of Instructional Design and Technology because of her extensive contributions to the field. She has devoted her life's work to researching how technology can be incorporated in the classroom. She has been the recipient of grants totaling over $7 million which have led to teaching initiatives aimed at enhancing technology approaches to teaching. Smaldino is a firm believer in convenient cost -effective online instruction because of its implications for working students. I’ll end with Dr. Smaldino’s word on students considering online instruction: “Online learning experien ces do require you, the student, to assume responsibility for your learning . But, you will find that when you have participa ted in a quality online experien ce, your learning experien ces will be outstanding . Most students report that in the end, they learned more about the content and more about themselves as learners than they ever expected .”
