Maureen Boland

Technology Integration Specialist

As the Technology Integration Specialist at Wright, I empower and assist faculty in the use of instructional technologies and theories. Throughout the semester, I deliver Blackboard workshops, introduce a timely Bb topic every other week, and am available for on-demand tutoring either in-person, through email or phone calls. Each week I introduce a new technology or technique that may be useful to teaching.

Sometimes people know where they are going and know where they have been, but need to be reminded of how to get there or what are the middle steps of their journey. With teaching technology, often I am given the opportunity to accompany and partner with faculty on their journey of self-discovery. I am like a TechnoSherpa, supporting technology use at Wright.    

For the past three years I have served on Learning Dimensions and Helping Students Learn committees for the  Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP)-The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools Assessment.  These committees encourage me to look at how the education we provide is able to be improved.

Ages ago I was the first Webber at Wright. Collecting and organizing information, researching and applying best practices, monitoring and responding to usability issues, I created and maintained the college website.

I have worn many hats.  I was also instrumental in the newly online Library Technical Assistant Program, first as co-creator then as Director.  I have been Library Automation Coordinator, lecturer, cataloger and reference librarian.
