Matt enjoys working at the crossroads of learning theories and their pedagogical implementations with a little technology thrown in to spice things up. His background includes technology curriculum development and instruction for the Adult Technology Education Center and Teen Computer Clubhouse at Boston’s Harriet Tubman House; e-Media project management for Harcourt publishing; and instructional design for St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas; Master of Advanced Oncology online for Universität Ulm, German;, and Master of Public Administration online for UNC’s School of Government.

As staff liaison between the Office of Arts & Sciences Information Services and the Center for Faculty Excellence, he strives to find innovative ways instructors can guide students along a journey to develop identities as productive members of academic and professional communities. These pathways often call for the use of advanced technologies such as online networking platforms, classroom response systems, virtual classrooms, blogging, and streaming video. At other times the best tool is a pencil.

Along with his work at CFE, he enjoys playing, teaching, and performing music, and developing interactive eBooks for music instruction.
