- I regularly participate in a number of organizations from as narrow as instructional technology to broader levels focusing on higher education in general.

- In 2015 I attended and presented with my colleague at NW/MET. We presented on our Untethered Teaching initiative

- Title: Redeeming Innovation: Engaging Emerging Technologies by Rediscovering our Roots
- Abstract: Emerging technologies are abundant and ever evolving. A day doesn’t pass without a software update or another exciting product release from our favorite technology company. Our Christian academic libraries are ideally situated with the infrastructure and cultural ethos needed to navigate this burgeoning reality well. As we engage this unfolding reality, how might our libraries explore this new frontier wisely? What essential components are needed to refine our approach as we integrate new emerging technology? My keynote will invite us to embark on a journey—including a short visit to a “low tech” spiritual retreat community—to help us develop a toolkit with themes of play, collaboration, hospitality, and contextual adaptation.
