I am trained as a cultural anthropologist, and serve as a senior scientist at UW-Madison where I direct the Learning through Evaluation, Assessment and Dissemination (LEAD) Center. The LEAD Center, an organization of some 12 professionals, supports faculty (primarily in the science and engineering fields) engaged in educational reform activities by providing evaluation research. My work at the LEAD Center has led me into serious consideration of how the emerging information technologies can best be used to help SMET faculty education reformers achieve their goals for student learning. This, in turn, led me to accept the role of "lead Fellow" for the 1999-2000 Institute on Learning Technology, a project of the National Institute for Science Education (NISE) College Level One team. The College Level One team is led by Art Ellis-who is organizing this workshop, and with whom I have the pleasure of working.

In previous positions, I taught with the UW-Madison Women's Studies Program, managed large scale databases and conducted analysis for the University of Wisconsin System Administration, co-directed the Pew-funded National Study of Master's Degrees, and conducted research for the Penn State Center for the Study of Higher Education.
