My name is Jeff Olsen. I am an alumnus/ Grad Student at the University of St. Thomas . In my first go around as an undergrad and graduate student, I completed a graduate certificate in Learning Technology, a Master of Arts in Teacher Preparation – Secondary (focus on K-12 Instrumental / Orchestra and general Music ), licensure in K-12 Instrumental / Orchestra and general music and a B.A. in Music performance. I have more recently completed another graduate certificate in E-Learning which I applied to a second Masters degree (MA) in Learning, Performance, and Technology.
Right now I am employed at Normandale Community College as a Educational Technologist/ Multimedia Lab Manager and adjunct faculty in the department of Music. I also do occasional adjunct teaching for Minnesota State – Mankato.
In my efolio site you will find sections describing my educational experience, work experience, educational projects and artifacts, work examples that have a focus on ELearning, course creation, and Instructional Design, educational philosophy and general resources related to technology integration in education.
Note – this ‘digital’ portfolio may seem a little ‘meaty’. This is due in part to it also being used as a summative assessment tool for a couple of my graduate classes. If you are looking for an overview of my experience as well as some work examples, the first places to look would be under the Resumé / CV tab and Projects in E-Learning/ Learning Technology tab.
