An educational technology expert, Jennifer has used her Designed to Inspire blog to find common ground between the non-traditional ideas of connectivism, informal learning, and personal learning networks and the more traditional higher education and corporate training philosophies of education.

Jennifer currently serves as the Assistant Editor of the Journal of Computing in Higher Education.
