About annhillduin

As Associate Vice President, Academic Administration, I provide input and direction to the University’s current work to align academic technology system wide. As full professor, my research focuses on academic analytics and the impact of social media/networks on writing and student success. Since pioneering the University of Minnesota’s first graduate online course, I have continued to teach and design innovative approaches to teaching online. I also serve as the Director of Graduate Studies for the Master of Science in Scientific and Technical Communication program.

Today begins the first week of Exploring PLNs. I’ll share the journey here.
