EdTech Speaks


009 with Dr. Tobin, Using Technology in Higher Ed

Season 1, Ep. 9

On today's episode, we invited Thomas J. Tobin to join us. Thomas, PhD, MSLS, PMP, MOT, CPACC is the Program Area Director for Distance Teaching & Learning on the Learning Design, Development, & Innovation (LDDI) team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as an internationally recognized speaker and author on quality in technology-enhanced education. His books include

• Evaluating Online Teaching: Implementing Best Practices (2015).

• The Copyright Ninja: Rise of the Ninja (2017).

• Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education (2018).

• Going Alt-Ac: A Guide to Alternative Academic Careers (2020). 

He says, "A lot of you will know that if you want to have job security, one of the things you can look for is anybody who wants an instructional designer, an ed tech person. These days you can kind of write your own ticket because people are desperate for someone who knows the technology and who can also talk about it in plain language that other people will understand."
