Position title: Instructional Technology Consultant
Erica J. Hagen is passionate advocate for active learning in her role as an Instructional Technology Consultant in the College of Engineering. She nurtured twin loves in Engineering Education and Geological Engineering as a student at UW Madison (BS ‘09, MS ‘11) and cut her teeth on blended education while designing and implementing Soil Mechanics in 2011-2013. When she is not helping faculty and staff improve courses through pedagogically sound technology, she makes art, plays games, and enjoys all things speculative fiction and manages to fit in long sessions of playing ball with her two German Shepherds.
She is an active member of the campus Instructional Technologist community serving on the Canvas Features Request Working Group, the ITG Roles Subcommittee, the Quizzing Roles Functional Gaps project, ComETS Steering Committee, and Summer Online Courses Committee. She participates in the Faculty Development Constituency Committee at ASEE, regularly attends InstructureCon, and for the first time attended the Big10 Engineering IT Conference in 2018.
