Mikah Pritchard, currently in the M.S. Ed. in Instructional Systems Technology program at Indiana University, began working in FITS this fall as an instructional technologist. We are glad to have her join the FITS team! With a B.S. in psychology, she has had an interest in educational psychology and education studies throughout her academic and professional career, which has involved work in graphic design, online instructional materials, and non-traditional student education, including adult learners. Combining her passions of technology and educational psychology in her current position, Mikah empowers users with practical advice on technology in teaching and learning with a strong theoretical foundation.
Mikah will oversee Student Technology Support, which provides technology assistance and training for classes and student projects. Faculty who would like their students trained on university-supported software should contact Mikah (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss how Student Technology Support can best serve student needs. She looks forward to meeting students, staff, and faculty members as she learns about how technology supports teaching and learning at DePauw University.
