I joined Bethel University as an Assistant Professor of Biology in Fall 1986 and progressed up to Professor of Biology. In June 2001, I took a position as Bethel's first full time Faculty Instructional Technology Consultant. I am an Ecologist by training, but throughout my academic career I was always at the forefront of technology. During my M.S. work at Purdue University, I worked on insect population ecology and during the analysis of my data I spent lots of time in the basement of the Math building punching and processing data cards using a CDC6500 mainframe as well as doing computer modelling using a PDP1170. During my doctoral work in systems ecology at Northern Arizona University, I completed my entire dissertation using the campus mainframe and was the first graduate student to print their disseration using a computer. When I joined the Biology Department at Bethel, I first started programming an Apple II to do some basic simulations, then progressed to developing a physiology acquistion system using National Instruments LabView and Apple Macintosh computers. I consider myself a technology intuitive and work extensively with a diversity of current and emerging learning technologies. In Fall 2003 I pioneered a graduate course in online teaching (COMM722 Effective Teaching Online) taught fully in the online environment and then in Spring 2007 taught Bethel's first fully online undergraduate general education science, technology, and society course (ENS305K: Transforming Technology). During the summer of 2012, I developed and taught Bethel's first fully online lab science course, ENS102D Environment and Humanity.
