Dear C2C Members:
I am honored so serve as the Chairperson for Colleague2Colleague (C2C) for 2016-2017! I have been part of the organization for many years and am thrilled to help lead the organization for this year. I currently serve as the Educational Technology Coordinator at Emporia State University where I research new and emerging technologies, collaborate with faculty and develop grant proposals. Kendra Barker, Instructional Design Specialist from the University of Missouri Kansas City, serves as the Vice-Chair for this year. Kendra and I are always interested in discovering new tools for the classroom and how to engage students and faculty and meaningful interactions. C2C offers many ways to connect and we are honored to be on your team.
Over the past several years C2C has given me the tools needed to better serve my institution and my colleagues. I encourage you to actively engage and participate in our listserv where you can ask questions and receive feedback from our members. C2C consists of a diverse group of people with many resources and networks depend and rely on them for help with new and emerging technologies.
