Throughout my career I have enjoyed and taken great pride in my teaching. I started teaching in 1971 and continue to teach two courses a year in the Ph.D. Program in Urban Education at the CUNY Graduate Center. In addition to formal coursework, I also have done a significant amount of professional development ranging from half-day to one-week in-person workshops and seminars as well as televised (University of Texas Starlink Educational Broadcasting System and the CUNY Media Distribution System) seminars. I am currently on the faculty of four academic programs at the City University of New York and have taught in all of them within the last five years. The courses I have taught and designed materials for include:

  • Education Networks: Power, Wealth, Cyberspace, and the Digital Mind
  • Education’s Digital Future: Teaching with Technology in the Modern University
  • Research Seminar in Higher Education Policy, Organization and Structure
  • Higher Education Policy and Practice
  • Quantitative Research
  • Education Research Methods
  • American Education Policy
  • History, Theory, and Practice of Interactive Media
  • Technology and Education: Policy and Research Issues
  • Introduction to Astronomy
  • Contemporary Issues in Education
  • Organization of School Districts
  • The Principalship
  • Managerial Tools for School Administrators
  • School Law
  • School Finance
  • School Improvement through Technology & Data Driven Decision Making
  • Educational Technology
  • Social Foundations of Education
Throughout my career, I have tried to integrate technology into my teaching. I started teaching online courses in 1996 and have continued to do this since. In recent years, I have specifically made use of the Internet and media in presenting content and engaging students in course material. I have made twenty-four short instructional videos, all of which are available by clicking here.

A sample of these videos follow.

Blending with Purpose: The Multimodal Model
The purpose of this video is to introduce a blending with purpose multimodal conceptual model for designing and developing blended learning courses and programs. A blended learning model is presented that suggests that instruction be designed to meet the needs of a variety of learners. Specifically, Blending with Purpose: The Multimodal Model recognizes that because learners represent different generations, different personality types, and different learning styles, teachers and instructional designers should seek to use multiple approaches including face-to-face methods and online technologies that address the learning needs of a wide spectrum of students.
