ABOUT ME

I teach Needs Analysis and Assessment, HRD Research and Practice, Learning in Organizations, Application of Research Methods to IST Issues, and Instructional Technology Foundations. Before joining IU, I had worked as an HR professional for more than 10 years in diverse contexts, business, non-profit, and academic sectors. My research interests reflect my diverse work experience including action learning in organizations, HRD, the interdisciplinary nature of human resource fields, and women in leadership.
