Robin L. Gill
My primary focus as the Instructional Designer at the Penn State DuBois campus is to support the initiatives that advance the learning experiences and environment that we provide for students and faculty. The faculty are assisted in producing projects that involve active student participation and collaboration through the use of emerging academic technologies. Through this initiative, DuBois has been making a commitment to provide its faculty the time, technologies, and staff support to make measurable advances toward a contemporary learning environment.
As the Instructional Designer I am responsible for aiding faculty development in the use of instructional technology tools, and following the instructional design process to meet the instructional goals of their courses. I work with faculty in converting a targeted area of their instruction to include alternate routes that will enhance active learning and integrate more student-centered, learning approaches, while also considering the incorporation of appropriate academic technologies.
As the Penn State DuBois Campus ID, I have worked with faculty from all disciplines. I also work with faculty to submit proposals and grants to organizations within Penn State and outside the university.
I am actively involved in providing and locating instructional opportunities for faculty to learn new teaching techniques and professional development, our latest endeavors being Outcomes Assessment, Strategic Planning, Online Course development, and ANGEL.
Many of the initiatives mentioned above have been funded through my grants efforts, and with these funds we have made many strides in offering students and faculty the top of the line computer labs, collaborative learning and presentation environments, and more.
