In this presentation, three universities -- University of Florida (UFL), University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC), and University Littoral Cote d'Opale (ULCO) -- will discuss their use of surveys and production server data to better understand how faculty and students are using their respective learning management systems. Each institution is unique, with different populations and programs. Learn how these universities conducted their research, what trends were discovered, and what actions the findings have motivated.
Technical Trainer & Support Consultant
I have coordinated training programs for 19 years. In Venezuela, I coordinated an environmental educational program in national parks for 6 years, in which I trained over 30 facilitators. In the United States, my Master?s thesis at the University of Florida (UF) dealt with planning, implementing, and evaluating a training program for national parks staff for the continuation of the previous educational program. In addition, from summer 1999 to spring 2008, I worked for the Center for Instructional and Research Computing Activities, Office of Academic Technology (AT), where I created and supervised computer-based training programs. Later, in June 2008, I was promoted as a Science and Technology Training Specialist and trained Help Desk staff for the Application Support Center. From January 2009 to May 2011, I worked as a Supervisor and Coordinator of AT Computer Labs Training Program. During 12 years, I trained over 500 technology consultants, training specialists, and supervisors for assisting professors, students, and staff in five computers labs on campus regarding lab procedures, troubleshooting hardware and software problems, Microsoft and Adobe applications, and webpage design. In June 2011, I accepted to work for another area of AT, e-Learning and Support Service, to be responsible of carrying out statistical training courses for faculties, professional staff, and students. I have a Master?s and Ph.D. degrees in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation.
