Courses Taught in Past Semesters:
Texas A&M University-Commerce, Fall 2003-present:
(T: traditional lecture style, W: web-based/online, DE: distance education. T is the default unless otherwise indicated.)
Most courses are delivered as web-enhanced courses through eCollege. Every course in the list had a technology component: all introductory level undergraduate courses integrated TI calculators or Excel application, and most upper level undergraduate and graduate courses integrated computer mathematics and statistics software including R, Mathematica, MATLAB and Geometer's Sketchpad.
The strategies I use for integrating technology in classroom instruction was featured by the IT & DE Department at A&M-Commerce on the October 2010 issue of the Faculty Spotlight.
