Welcome to Introduction to Instructional Media! My name is Dr. Amanda Goodwin, and I am excited to be your instructor for this course. I have my BA in Elementary Education and English from Monmouth University in New Jersey, my MS in Educational Technology from Ramapo College in New Jersey, and my Ed.D. in Instruction and Administration from UK. I taught second grade for five years in Mahwah, New Jersey and I really loved being a classroom teacher. This is my fifth year teaching Introduction to Instructional Media, and I will also be supervising elementary practicum students and student teachers this semester. I enjoy teaching this class, and I greatly enjoy working with pre-service teachers. I'm looking forward to a successful semester with each of you!
