My piece of the puzzle:
Georgia enjoys the challenge of integrating content, media technologies, and structured learning environments to produce a rich learning experience for students.

Before moving to Tucson, Arizona, to pursue a PhD in human geography at the University of Arizona, Georgia was a broadcast journalist and documentary producer for Florida’s PBS television network. While at the U of A, she designed, built, and taught fully online and hybrid courses using D2L. She gained experience teaching large classes and discussions, in addition to small seminars and workshops, and she has guest lectured at the University of Arizona, Florida A & M University in Tallahassee, Florida, and Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. She came to OIA from the BS-GIST program, where she worked with faculty to adapt or design courses for distance learning.

Background & Education:
Georgia has a B.S. in communication and an M.A. in geography from Florida State University. She has a Master’s certificate in medical anthropology and is nearing completion of a PhD in health geography. Georgia’s academic interests include the social construction of disease, citizen science, health activism, socio-spatial theory, learning theory, multi-media design and instructional design.
