Hi, I’m Becky Moulder, the newest member of the Canvas courseware support team. I’m excited to join the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center staff in assisting Canvas users and incorporating technology in education.
While my background is in professional writing, I have been very interested in the role technology plays in learning for some time. I earned a B.A. in English/Professional Writing from Kutztown University and an M.S. in Instructional Technology from Chestnut Hill College. For the past 8 years, I worked as a medical writer and editor for ECRI Institute, a non-profit healthcare research agency based in Plymouth Meeting, Pa.
Working in higher ed is a change of pace for me, but one that has already proved to be very fun. How many other people can say they work in a library housing an incredible collection of rare books and surrounded by a vibrant, buzzing community of students, faculty, staff, and visitors? And let’s not forget the close proximity to so many great food trucks!
In the coming weeks and months I hope to share some of my interests in instructional design, online learning, social media, and Web 2.0 tools. Be on the lookout for future blog posts and workshops on these topics! And if you see me around in Van-Pelt (most likely lost), please stop and say hi!
