I have been teaching online and blended courses in the Fashion Business Management Department at FIT since 2008. I have enjoyed the challenge of integrating new technologies and programs to best engage the online learner. It is wonderful to see student progression and growth of the online community in discussions and diverse contribution. I feel fortunate to be the facilitator to these students as they challenge themselves and each other by sharing their research, intellect and passion for learning through my course content.
