The Institute will provide both practicing teachers and those preparing to enter the field with the opportunity to learn about the most important up and coming technologies and (most importantly) how they can be effectively leveraged in their home districts. The institute can also connect you to some of the most innovative teachers in the area on the date of the institute and beyond.
Peach, a Ph.D. and educational technology specialist, has worked with both higher education and K-12 faculty to improve their knowledge and use of the most innovative and practical technologies available to teachers today. She has presented on educational and instructional technology topics ranging from the effective use of learning management systems to the application of inquiry learning in online coursework. Her research centers on technologies applied to encourage student self-reflection and voice in writing as well as the impact of technology on effective collaboration to solve 21st century issues. Most recently, she has founded STLIDT (St. Louis Instructional Designers and Technologists), a local group of instructional design specialists that collaborate on new systems and processes. She is most excited, however, at the opportunity this institute presents to connect the wealth of teaching talent in St. Louis’ various districts with Fontbonne’s pre-service teachers and faculty.
