Leftwich named new AVP Learning Technologies

Newly appointed associate vice president for Learning Technologies Anne Leftwich has a passion for teaching.

“I come from a family of K-12 teachers,” she said. “I started out thinking I would become an elementary school teacher, but during my student teaching, I received a state-wide award for using technology in the classroom and that really spurred on my love of using technology with students.”

Now as Associate Vice President for Learning Technologies in the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology, Leftwich will lead staff who focus on using technology to improve the classroom experience and learning processes for students and faculty across all Indiana University campuses.

Leftwich is currently the Barbara B Jacobs Chair in Education Technology within the IU Bloomington School of Education, a full professor in the Instructional Systems Technology Department and has previously served as the department chair for the Learning Design and Adult Education Department within the School of Education. During the past 17 years at IU, she has been conducting outreach, teaching, researching, and writing on these topics, as well as the principal investigator (PI) or co-PI on externally funded grants and projects worth millions of dollars.
