I've been a full-time Professor in the Information Technology Department at Seminole State College in Florida since 1994, but I've been a computer "trainer" since the early 1980s. I teach Intro to Computers and various Microsoft Office courses, on-campus and online. We have used SAM in our Office Applications classes since the late '90s and now use MindTap Collections for Intro to Computers.
As our enrollment grows and our student population changes, we rely on SAM and MindTap more than ever. Its quick grading and consistent feedback helps students learn from mistakes and reinforces what they know. As a Faculty Partner, I'm able to share my knowledge and at the same time, I learn from others. SAM and MindTap have improved my teaching and given me more time to help students learn, and both digital tools have definitely helped improve student completion and retention. We are now using Canvas LMS-integrated Cengage products in our classes, and I look forward to helping colleagues as they make that transition as well.
I earned my BS in Operations Research (Math/Computer Science) from the United States Air Force Academy and my MS in Information Systems Management from the University of Southern California. I've served on multiple college and community committees and participate in many focus groups with Cengage. I look forward to more sharing and learning with my colleagues!
