Research Assoc./Designer

University of Central Florida

Originally I was hired to organize and maintain a educational software lending library that was part of a grant project (The Instructional Resource Center at the University of Central Florida) housed in the College of Education. As I continued with the project responsibilities were added - workshop instructor; organizing, proofing, preparing materials submitted for the conference (FETC) CD and other CDs that the project produced; website layout and graphics: print materials layout and graphics: creating and maintaining FileMaker databases, making some of those databases accessible through our website; working with the Florida DOE on various project (software catalog database, Sunshine State Standards database, layout and design of print and online materials (www.sunlink.ucf.edu/finds)). SUNLINK was a sister project, as was FOR-PD (Florida Online Reading - Professional Development). My time was divided among all three, however when the ITRC lost its funding, I began working full time for SUNLINK and remained with the project until May of 2008.
