AECT Standard 4: Management

The following work samples demonstrate my ability to plan, organize, coordinate, and supervise instructional technology by applying principles of project, resource, delivery system, and information management. This role comes naturally to me as I have managed projects and staffs professionally since 1994. Project management responsibilities have included print and electronic content development. I have also been a people manager, responsible for the performance of internal staffs, freelance contributors, and third-party design agencies and programmers. Please see my curriculum vitae for more detail on my professional management experience.

Work Samples

While enrolled at UTSA, I stepped up as Project Leader on numerous group efforts, but the following are two of my most noteworthy efforts. Click the images or text links below to see the Flash-based learning modules.

Let's Learn About Baking Let's Learn about Baking: I was the programmer and project manager for this group project developed in IST 6603, Animation (2009). Using an assets and segments spreadsheet to manage the workload, I took the lead to organize deadlines, break down the work into manageable chunks, and assign duties for the project.

Rowdy Robot Math RoundupRowdy Robot Math Roundup (HTML version for mobile devices): I was the project manager for this group project prepared for IST 6353, Multimedia (2010). As project manager I was responsible for project assignments, meeting deadlines, directing the work of others, and guiding the diverse personalities and skill sets of the group for the duration of this semester-long project. I arranged group meetings and back-ups, managed the uploading site (Unfuddle), prepared schedules, created and managed to-do lists, and gathered the input of the group to generate the project's academic paper.

As a result of these group projects and many others I've participated in at UTSA, I've become a regular user and huge fan of Google Docs. This should be evident from my eportfolio, as many of the links are Google Docs. The ability to collaborate and share without always having to meet face-to-face has been an incredibly valuable resource that I think instructors could use more liberally with students as an instructional tool.
