As associate director of the Center for Teaching, Steve manages a portfolio of learning technology consulting services and initiatives, including the ITTA program and ongoing investigations of digital course content, among others. He also looks for strategic and emerging opportunities where learning technologies can directly solve faculty instructional goals and support student learning.

He's interested in the ways that learning technologies impact and change socio-cultural interplay between faculty, students and university administration, for example how active learning classrooms can upend the power relationship between instructor and student and how that disruption supports students creation and ownership of their academic production.
