IRVINE, Calif. (July 2, 2020) Kimberly Greene, Ed.D., professor of education at Brandman University, is available to speak to reporters covering how school systems are shifting to online learning while public health directives close campuses.

For Brandman, Greene teaches courses on the foundations of online teaching, instructional leadership, and the influence of schooling on democratic practices and social change. She is also a founding director of the university’s Center for Instructional Innovation, which provides technological assistance to students and faculty, as well as professional development services to instructors.

Greene recently hosted “Tips for Teaching Online,” a webinar helping K-16 instructors prepare to transition from teaching in front of classrooms to using technology to connect with students.

“When instruction moves online, the potential for students to be fully immersed and engaged with the intended learning is massive,” Greene said. “Educators who understand the complexity of teaching online ensure students focus on the active learning of new skills, abilities and the real meanings of lessons, rather than the technology being used to deliver them.”

Greene earned her Doctorate of Educational Technology from Pepperdine University. Brandman’s School of Education honored Greene with its Faculty of the Year award in 2010 and 2018.
