IX.    OTHER PROFESSIONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS

       A.       Course/Program Development

                1.      Faculty Technology Coordinator, College of Education and Human Development
                        (2006-present)
                        Included in this academic year position I am responsible for developing policy and
                        procedures for use of COEHD assets, to work with departmental representatives to
                        review technology infrastructure needs, to offer technical training in newly adopted
                        software applications in the COEHD and to help individual faculty members with
                        specific voiced technology needs, to research and suggest technology items to be
                        purchased by the COEHD, to monitor the status of technology classrooms, to assist
                        faculty in online course development and to represent the COEHD in matters at the
                        university level concerning online course work. Finally with a colleague and and
                        working with a website developer, I oversee the development and design of a new
                        COEHD website.

                2.      Program Coordinator Education of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students –
                        (1990-present)
                        I direct the only program in Deaf Education offered in the state of Louisiana. As
                        Coordinator of the concentration area of Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in
                        the Department of Special Education and Habilitative Services, I have redesigned course
                        work and developed field-based practicum opportunities throughout the state of
                        Louisiana. This is the only completely on-line certification course work program in
                        Louisiana and one of two in the southeast.

                        I offered the first UNO regional course in Deaf Education in Lafayette (1993), taught
                        students statewide using UNO‟s interactive compressed video lab (1999, 2000, 2001),
                        and have developed and offered all necessary course work for add-on certification in
                        hearing impairment in Louisiana offered distally in both asynchronous and synchronous
                        on-line formats. (*Note: I have been a leader in offering distally delivered course work
                        in the College of Education and Human Development (COE&HD). During the fall 2001
                        semester, I offered our department‟s first and COE & HD‟s third web-based course (no
                        face-to-face class meeting times). In 2001, as part of a grant project, I developed and co-
                        administered a statewide cybermentor network which pairs experienced and newly
                        certified or non-certified teachers of deaf and hard of hearing or visually impaired
                        students. This network utilized Internet web-based communication. This concept has
                        since “gone nationwide” and expanded in scope by the Join Together PT3 grant for which
                        I am a team leader. To our UNO students, this has meant both teacher candidates and in-
                        service teachers in Louisiana could be mentored by a person in the cyber network who
                        resides across the country.

                        I organized (with Dr. Randall Scott) the grant supported Summer Institute in Sensory
                        Impairments through which students can earn up to 9 semester hours in Deaf Education
                        and or Visual Impairment. The Institute provides students with the opportunity to hear
                                                                                                               15

                         nationally renowned speakers in a small interactive format. Each summer, I develop a
                         new focus course offered under “Special Topics” entitled, Advanced Strategies in Deaf
                         Education.


                3.       Education (EDUC) Core Curriculum Coordinator: COE&HD Re-Design effort –
                         In the fall of 2004 I assumed the responsibilities of coordinating the COE & HD‟s EDUC
                         core course sequence in the undergraduate, certification only, practitioner, and master‟s
                         programs in teacher education. I relinquished this position in fall 2006 to assume the
                         responsibilities of the faculty technology Coordinator of the COEHD (see above). This
                         EDUC Coordinator position involves coordinating the all course work prefaced by
                         EDUC (approximately 35 courses) and the 5 full-time faculty members and numerous
                         adjuncts who teach these courses. I also teach at least 1 EDUC course per semester in
                         addition to my regular EDSP course load in deafness. I do this because I believe a
                         program coordinator who is in charge of other faculty should also teach in that program.
                         In addition to teaching and administrative responsibilities for the EDUC core courses, I
                         helped develop all of these courses during our re-design process. The EDUC structure
                         was new to the COE & HD as an innovative and central portion of our framework. As
                         coordinator of EDUC, I was (and continue to be) instrumental in the development,
                         piloting, and adoption of a case study based portal assessment instrument, This
                         assessment is one of the 4-6 assessments required by NCATE and has garnered
                         praise from colleagues outside of our university for its comprehensiveness and ease of
                         use.

       B.       Course load
                1.       As the only faculty member in my specialized area, in addition to advising all students in
                         Deaf Education, I must also teach all courses required for certification in Hearing
                         Impairment in the State of Louisiana. This, is in addition to teaching at least one course
                         per semester in either other areas in Special Education or EDUC means that I routinely
                         teach a heavier than required course load most semesters, It is important to note that in
                         the certification area of „Hearing Impairment” UNO offers the only program leading to
                         certification and Master‟s degree in the state of Louisiana, and I am the sole professor in
                         this program. The Louisiana Department of Education has recognized this fact, noting
                         that preparing teacher of deaf and hard of hearing students has been and remains an area
                         of critical need for not only the state, but the nation as well.

                         Of the 10 different courses in Deaf Education I teach ( all of them have now be taught in
                         online and live formats) two, Sign Language 1 and 2, routinely have a predominant
                         number of students who are not Education or deaf education majors. The completion of
                         these two courses now meets the foreign language requirement for the department of
                         psychology and the department of sociology. The demand for my sign language classes is
                         so great that they usually fill up and are subsequently closed on the first day of
                         registration.

                       coordinated a camp for deaf children, their parents and siblings, their teachers and
                       paraprofessionals, and UNO university students. This one-week summer camp focused
                       on instruction in the Cued Speech method. A total of just under 110 participants were
                                                                                                                16

                4.   Inter-University Service
                     a.       For two years in the late 1990s, I served as a liaison between a profoundly deaf
                              general education student, her home-based university, and her professors at
                              UNO. The student‟s home based university did not feel it could adequately meet
                              the student‟s educational needs and contracted with me, and UNO‟s College of
                              Education, to provide liaison services to ensure she received an appropriate
                              education while she attended UNO for the remainder of her courses in
                              elementary education.

                     b.        I have been an active participant in three multi-university grants administered by
                               the Association of College Educators of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ACE-
                               D/HH). These grants have a combined funding of over $6 million dollars. Two
                               of these have been “Preparing Tomorrow‟s Teachers Today” (PT3) grants. Our
                               second grant, completed in 2003, targeted the development of syllabi to share
                               among the colleges and universities in the United States offering course work in
                               Deaf Education. I was a member of the Sign Language Syllabi Development
                               Team, and Technology Expert On-line Panel member. Finally, I have assumed
                               one of a handful of official leadership roles in our current PT3 grant, “Join
                               Together: A Nationwide On-Line Community of Practice and Professional
                               Development School Dedicated to Instructional Effectiveness and Academic

                               Broadston at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, I am the co-team leader for
