My name is Jered Borup.  I'm currently an assistant professor in the Division of Learning Technologies at George Mason University and am working to build the Blended and Online Learning in Schools Master's and Certificate program which began its first cohort in Fall 2014. I earned my Ph.D. in Instructional Psychology and Technology from Brigham Young University in 2013. I have taught online and blended courses since 2008 and taught history for six years at a junior high school.  My current research interests include developing online learning communities and identifying support systems that adolescent learners require to be successful in online environments.

This portfolio has been created to highlight my experience in the areas of research, teaching, and design.  The following summarizes some of my accomplishments:
  • 25 peer-reviewed articles published or accepted for publication—14 as the first author
  • 10 book chapters published or accepted for publication—5 as the first author
  • Over 50 peer-reviewed conference presentations (AERA, AECT, SITE, E Learn, iNACOL, Open Ed, and NECC)
  • $270,000 obtained or committed funding from grants, awards, and fellowships 
  • 35 undergraduate and graduate course sections designed and taught using online, blended, and face-to-face formats 
  • 6 years teaching experience in K-12 settings with diverse student populations while serving in leadership positions (department chair and mentor to new teachers, university interns, and a student teacher)
