Frieden to lead new Center for Teaching, Learning & Technology

Dr. Brenda Frieden, associate professor in the Department of Special Services and Leadership Studies, has been named the director of the newly created Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology. In SSLS, Frieden has been director of educational technology, Blackboard administrator, and co-program director for the Educational Technology Graduate Degree Program.

Dr. Steve Scott, vice president for academic affairs, said “Brenda has developed positive and collaborative relationships across the entire campus and has become the ‘go to’ person when it comes to instructional technology issues. I’m anxious to see her leverage her experiences and knowledge into increased support of our campuswide efforts to create contemporary learning environments, enhance the support we offer teaching faculty, and energize our transition from a focus on teaching to a focus on learning. I believe she is well qualified to help us do just that.”

The goals for the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology include providing leadership in support of the application of educational technologies; the coordination of the delivery of high-quality faculty development that advances teaching effectiveness; oversight of the media used in the delivery of distance education; and technical assistance in support of instructional technologies.

Frieden will begin her duties on June 2.
