Dr. Amy Schelling Interview - 2012 Pew Teaching with Technology Award Recipient
Grand Valley State University's 2012 Pew Teaching with Technology Award was given to Dr. Amy Schelling, Program Coordinator for the College of Education’s Graduate Cognitive Impairment Endorsement and Master’s Program. Her responsibilities include teaching four online graduate level CI endorsement courses and one special education foundations course. She also serves on the board of the Michigan Council for Exceptional Children. Through her use of voice messaging, Camtasia screen recordings and instructor created videos she has been able to establish and sustain a real sense of community in her online courses. Prior to this year's symposium, we had an opportunity to meet with Dr. Schelling to discuss her favorite strategies and tools, how she utilizes them to foster a community of learners, and how important technology will be to the future of education.
