- My research interest focuses on the use of technology tools, particularly digital and web-based ones, and how the ability or inability to effectively use them impacts the attitudes and productivity of diverse groups of learners (traditional and non-traditional) in higher education and the workplace. Because of my expertise in software application training and the instructional design of interactive, Web-based learning environments; my research includes investigating how best to incorporate the development of soft skills (i.e., collaboration, communication, leadership, and teamwork) as co-requisites to successful digital community participation.
