Hi – I’m the Newest Member of the LTG!

Pic of Liz for blog postI’m so happy to be here to help support the faculty, staff, and students at UCSF! I just moved across the country from the Washington D.C area, so not only do I have this awesome new job with the LTG, but I have an awesome new city to explore, too! I bring to UCSF several years of experience designing and developing online courses with specific expertise in using Moodle and Articulate.

Before joining UCSF, I was a Senior Training Specialist at Management Sciences for Health, an international development non-profit. I also previously worked at The George Washington University, the American Psychological Association, and the Corporate Executive Board. To date, I’ve earned an M.A. in Human Organizational Learning and a B.A. in Psychology.

Outside of the office, I like to work on creative projects with sewing and paper crafts, go to yoga and fitness classes, and enjoy great conversation with good people. I live with my husband, Tim, and our two adorable cats, Niko and Puka.

With the rest of the LTG team, I’m located on the 2nd floor of the Library at Parnassus. Stop by and say hi; I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Celebrating Two Years in the Tech Commons

In January 2011, UCSF celebrated the opening of the new Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) on the second floor of the Library. The northernmost portion of the TLC, called the Tech Commons, provides UCSF faculty, staff, and students with access to specialized equipment, training, and support, all while enjoying views of the Golden Gate Park and the Marin Headlands. If you haven’t had the opportunity to do so yet, please visit us! Learning Technologies Group staff are available during regular business hours (8:30-5, M-F) for consultations on using the Tech Commons to create a wide range of materials. Some of the resources we offer include:
