She keeps local WISE administrators informed of deadlines, outgoing and incoming WISE enrollment, student statuses, etc.; provides support and/or facilitates connections to support for students, faculty, and administrators as needed; and obtains all grades from host WISE administrators and processes them to the students’ home institutions; completes WISE course evaluations.Other administrative duties include working with the iSchool staff, instructors and students. Alison manages course selection and posting in consultation with the LIS program director and associate deans; works with iSchool staff to ensure courses are properly posted to the iSchool website and registrar system; promotes WISE courses to iSchool students via listserv postings, website announcements, and face-to-face/virtual office hours and/or class presentations; manages SU student inquiries and course requests; works with IT and ILMS administrators to ensure that incoming WISE students have proper course access; and works to ensure that outgoing WISE students are properly registered at SU.

Research

Alison is excited to apply her experience in a teaching capacity. Most of her career has been LIS oriented, so she is looking to experience teaching and instruction to integrate her LIS background and her current and future research interests and findings.

Teaching

Alison is interested in researching collaboration among faculty and librarians in the distance learning environment through the lens of Social Presence Theory. Her research interests also include comparisons of asynchronous, synchronous and hybrid delivery in distance learning environments at the Master’s level. She is uniquely positioned in her job and current educational program to observe and participate in collaboration in each of these environments. This enables her to begin to identify effective academic and library instruction in the distance learning environment at the Master’s level. Additionally, Alison observes collaboration among online instructors and students and the potential use of virtual learning communities.
