Leo Porter, Ph.D.

Faculty Fellow

Dr. Porter will be assisting faculty in building online courses through consultations during their course design. In that regard, he will share literature-based effective practices in online teaching, learning outcome development, course and assessment design, and how to film and deliver quality videos. As an experienced MOOC designer, Dr. Porter knows that project management is as critical as pedagogy in ensuring course success, so he will also assist faculty with tools for completing courses on time. Where needed, he will also provide feedback on portions of their courses. Lastly, Dr. Porter will work with the new Center for Digital Learning to develop online courses or teaching materials and to explore better ways to leverage the high-quality materials online to help students in our in-person classes.
