I serve in an advisory and review capacity for a faculty editing OER materials for use in our Math 1060
course. These edit are for easier readability of the text and bringing the text inline with our department curriculum. The book format for this project will then be used as a template
for future OER textbooks in our department.
I chaired the OER Calculus committee looking at OER books and materials and reviewing, with the ultimate
goal of an OER calculus book adopted by the department and free to students. This led to reviewing for OpenStax and their Calculus book will be released by the end of the year. My
goal at that time is to take what they've done and repurpose and/or re-mix to fit our department needs and then work to have this text adopted by the department.
I'm a member of the Math Accessibility Working Group (MAWG) of the Universal Access Committee. Last
year we explored math accessibility issues and this year we are making real progress towards making our courses accessible. We meet twice a month and work on assignments for the group
I have seved two years serving on the college OER Advisory Group.
I maintain an extensive website with resources I've created for math classes. Because the college is taking down the servers that house
these resources, I am in the process of transferring materials to a new site. These include PowerPoint tutorials, concept videos and worked example videos. These are used by both
full-time and adjunct faculty as well as an additional student resource.
I regularly serve on the sitting tenure committee for full-time faculty.
I officially mentor adjuncts, observing courses and offering advice, testing examples, etc. I also unofficially mentor
many adjuncts at Jordan Campus as I see them in the FTLC or my office, offering assistance and training.
I learned to use and integrate MyOpenMath into Canvas and have shared knowledge with others both in and out of the department
on how to do this.
I am the course coordinator for online Math 1210 and online Math 1220.
I created activities and concept videos and worked example videos for calculus I and II as well as extensive Canvas sites for
teaching these courses. This site includes video links, just-in-time MyOpenMath pre-req review and weekly reflections. I have made these available for other faculty to link to or
use and have two faculty that copied my complete Canvas site for use this semester as well as several others that are using pieces.
I presented to our department faculty on Engaging Students Through Critical Thinking and Active Learning.
I presented to the TICE instructors on The Flipped Classroom.
I presented at the college professional development day on The Flipped Classroom.
I'm regularly seve on the book committees, most recently for calculus and Math 2250.
I have participated on several hiring committees, most recenty on the hiring committee for our math lab coordinator/programmer
I worked with e-learning personnel meeting 2 to 3 times weekly to brain-storm and define a process for developing
problem-based learning courses. The process that we defined has been used as a blueprint for the TICE
I designed and built an online problem-based learning Calculus I course which I am currently teaching. Problems are original and many are Utah-based for student interest and motivation.
I served as a member of the CORE (COurse REdesign initiative committee, sharing what the math
department has done.
I served on the SLCC Student Standards Committee.
I served as co-coordinator of Math 1210, creating the signature project for the course and writing the spring departmental
final as well as advising adjunct faculty teaching this course.
I regularly serve on the department’s final review committees and most recently reviewed the 1210 final.
I have helped train both full-time and adjunct faculty on using MyOpenMath including it's integration in Canvas as well
as be a “go-to” person for help in using this software. I provide troubleshooting, advice and help to
adjunct and full-time colleagues using the software.
I worked on the Math 1010 redesign and shared materials developed and ideas with other faculty.
I attended training and have studied tutorials to learn how to use WebAssign and have created assignments using the software
for Calculus I and II. I share these assignments with interested faculty and have helped train faculty
interested in using WebAssign and copy and maintain a generic course for those students interested in using it.
I mentored an adjunct faculty participating in the adjunct academy (several meetings for the year discussing pedagogical
I follow educational pedagogy and technology blogs & webinars to keep abreast of ever changing technology. I am willing share what I learn with others (such as helping a faculty member with a tablet PC and Camtasia to
develop materials for TICE).
This list is recent college service. The list could go on and on, but bottom line, I've served in numerous areas, both
when asked and when I've seen a need to help our department and SLCC continue in their mission to engage and support students in educational pathways leading to successful transfer and
