We give thanks for Sister Veronica Ann Baxter (1928-2014), remembered for her innovative leadership of Marylhurst from 1974 to 1984, when the university transitioned to a co-educational college of lifelong learning.
Excerpt from an article by George Williams in The Chronicle of Higher Education, April 10, 2012.
Earlier this year a new journal was launched: Hybrid Pedagogy: A Digital Journal of Teaching & Technology, which describes itself as "an academic and networked journal on teaching and technology that combines the strands of critical and digital pedagogy to arrive at the best social and civil uses of technology and digital media in the classroom."
Hybrid Pedagogy is the creation of Pete Rorabaugh (@allistelling) and Jesse Stommel (@Jessifer).
Dr. Jesse Stommel is the director of Marylhurst University's English and digital humanities online program, which he writes about on HybridPedagogy.com. The program's scheduled start date is January 2013.
Stommel's areas of expertise include new media, 19th to 21st century American literature, postmodernism, digital Shakespeare, visual rhetoric, composition and digital pedagogy. He holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of Colorado Boulder.
