Working in public and higher education, Dr. Susan Morgan has had countless opportunities to experience all aspects of curriculum development and instruction. She continuously draws upon said experiences throughout her daily activities. It has always been her belief that curriculum and technology are interrelated and continue to play a pivotal role in the development of our students as life-long learners.
During her tenure in public education, she implemented the virtual academy program for students endangered of not meeting high school graduation requirements. She has worked with faculty to develop and utilize online courses through a learning management system. Through various professional development workshops, she encouraged the implementation of various online, synchronous and asynchronous techniques such as discussion forums, journals, blogs, web, and collaborate resources.
Finishing her eighth year in 2019 as an adjunct instructor at Penn State Schuylkill, she has had numerous opportunities to teach in both brick and mortar and virtual classrooms. All courses she utilizes have been created, developed, and delivered through Penn State’s online course management system (CANVAS). She teaches various IST and SRA courses along with MIS204 in the spring.
She strives to keep her students well-informed. Her belief is communication is the key to success, especially for online courses. Her standard procedure with online courses is to communicate regularly with the students and set high expectations. Those expectations encourage students to continue to communicate on a regular basis and maintain the quality of the course engagement.
