Meet Robert

Robert Voelker-Morris The merging of technology and education is an exciting combination of interests for me personally and professionally. Over the years I have worked in both areas, and with my work at TEP I have been able to combine the two into my consultant position. I enjoy the ways in which this TEP work allows me to share my knowledge and experience as well as learning from all the wonderful colleagues at the UO.

My previous instructional background has included teaching the General Education 'Arts and Visual Literacy' (AAD 251) course fully online for thirteen years and in the classroom. Additionally, I have co-taught First-Year seminars ranging in topics from 'zines and Do It Yourself Democracy' to 'Creative Collaborations' and most recently 'Art Meets Science: Making the Invisible Visible' (see our coruse sit here). I have also taught a graduate level Research Proposal seminar, and guest lectured in Art and Gender (AAD 252), Art and Human Values (AAD 250), Visual Communication and Mass Media (J 204), and Research Methods (AAD 630).

My acadmeic background includes aMasters degree in Arts and Administration with a concentration in museum studies at the UO, and a Bachelors degree in Art History from Oregon State University (and yes this does make my late November interesting). Of great interest to me as both an instructor and student are the topics of visual and media literacy, art history, photography, cinema studies, and digital media within the history of the arts.

The technology side of me has progressed from a personal interest in computer and html programming to museum digital preservation and currently to the use of educational technology and online course design.

With my technology experiences I have found it easy to expand my professional and educational interest into educational technology and online course design, which includes such areas as:

I was born and grew up in Eugene, and enjoy my time with the family-Julie, Isaac, and Elise-who all teach me something new each day.
