The ATPI doctoral program from the Department of Learning Technologies has supported both my professional and career goals. Throughout my academic experience, I was encouraged to network with faculty and scholar-practioners, engage in collaborative research projects, speak at professional conferences and associations, hone my writing craft for publications, and development my own voice in the learning and performance field.
My personal learning network, on campus and beyond, supports my scholarly experience and professional development. As an open and connected doctoral student you are able to learn about my research interests and experiences as I am often found posting on Twitter (https://twitter.com/laurapasquini) and on my blog (http://techknowtools.wordpress.com/) about my Ph.D. journey.
My areas of research blend open education, collaborative learning environments, and social web engagement for learning, training and professional development. I consider myself a self-declared geek and a self-taught techie who has an enthusiasm for engaging peers in online collaborative learning experiences. Here is my ATPI Doctoral Portfolio that shares my research, teaching, and service scholarship.
