My research interests focus on digital and web-based tools and how the ability or inability to use such tools
impacts the attitudes and productivity of diverse groups of learners in classrooms (traditional and non-
traditional) and the workplace. I specialize in software application training and the instructional design of
interactive, Web-based learning environment. I have a particular interest in how best to incorporate the
ongoing development of soft skills (i.e., collaboration, communication, leadership, and teamwork) as co-
requisites to digital community participation.

                                       PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Each of my business and industry positions provided me with opportunities to transfer my knowledge to the
workplace, consistently deal with and resolve conflict, solve problems, think through perplexing situations, and
develop strong communication, interpersonal, and technology skills. Each position served me well with numerous
experiences that currently support my understanding and ability to teach, my endeavors in scholarly activities and
my outreach to educational communities. Because I reply upon this repertoire of experiences and knowledge to
perform my duties within the university, they are listed as supplements to my academic appointments.

The Digital Divide Project
Proclaiming His Word Fellowship, Pleasantville, NJ 08232.                               March 2002 – June 2004

        The Digital Divide Project was a two-year community project operated at a local church under the
        umbrella of the Computer Literacy Outreach ministry. Its mission of awareness and Internet
        access to community residents was two-fold: a) educational outreach and b) technology outreach.
        The ultimate goal of the project was (through structured intervention and support) to reverse the
        negative impact of the digital divide on minority communities - one community at a time.

        This project operated with a $0 budget, but was supported through voluntary manpower and
        contributions. Following approximately six months of planning (April to September 2002), a
        one-year pilot to evaluate the feasibility of the project began with a select group of free basic
        computer workshops for adults (October 2002) and expanded to the inclusion of children (March
        2003). Attendance was controlled by advanced registration (four to six adults per session) and
        to ensure small groups and individualized support.

                         PROFESSIONAL/COMMUNITY SERVICE (continued)

   Digital Divide Highlights:

          October 2002 – December 2002: Six different beginners computer classes (90 minutes each)
           offered twice each week – grand total attendance of 49 individuals (15 individuals attended
           from one to all six classes).
          Field trip to a computer show: PC Show Inc, New Jersey Convention Center, Raritan Center,
           Edison, New Jersey in November 2002.
          April 2003 – June 2003: Beginner and intermediate computer classes were offered twice
           each week – grand total attendance of 47 individuals. The need to offer more beginners
           computer classes could not be met due to manpower limitations.
          Computer Saturdays for Kids (Ages 5-12): Two and one-half hour pilot sessions held once a
           month (March, April, June 2003) and limited to a maximum of 10 children (depending upon
           content) per Saturday – grand total attendance of 18 children (11 actual individuals
           attending from one to all three sessions). Sessions resumed September 27, 2003 with 8 in
           attendance.
          Implementation of a state-of-the-art, nine workstation, Internet-available, multimedia
           computer lab with printing, scanning, and video-editing capabilities in July 2003.
          Computer Camp for Kids (ages 5-12): Two-week summer computer camp program ran from
           August 4 – 15, 2003 (Mondays through Fridays from 9 AM – 12 Noon). Attendance
           averaged 14 children each day (17 individuals attended five to all 10 days of the camp - 8
           were from the original Computer Saturday for Kids group).
          Stockton Community Awareness Involvement:
               o Two graduate students voluntarily served as computer instructors during Computer
                    Camp for Kids for two and five days, respectively.
               o One graduate student served as a computer instructor for Computer Saturday for
                    Kids (September – November 2003).
