ABOUT ME

After serving nearly 30 years as a faculty member in the School of Education in the Instructional Systems Technology Department, I have retired from Indiana University.

Working at my own pace, I plan to continue creative projects near and dear to me, especially the furthering of:

I plan to retire on Dec. 31, 2012. I turn 65 in February, 2013, and expect to begin my 18-20 retirement benefits, starting Jan. 1, 2013I further plan to continue as an Emeritus Professor in IST for the indefinite future. I expect to continue working with my research groups, see dissertations to completion which I am directing, and to work on developing software for MAPSAT (Map &
  • Analyze Patterns &
  • Structures Across Time) and SimTIE (a simulation game), as well write a couple of books I have on the back burner--one on MAPSAT and one on TIE Theory (Totally Integrated Education).
  • Instructional Systems Technology Department: Chairperson of IST Department: I do adminstrative duties that chairs normally do which include oversight of promotion and tenure of faculty
  • course scheduling
  • leadership on new department initiatives
  • collaboration with deans and other department chairs in the School of Education
