Lindsey Sharp joined the iSchool on December 18 as a senior instructional technology support specialist. Sharp comes to the School from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, where she worked in various roles involving educational technology for Applied Technologies for Learning in the Arts and Sciences (ATLAS). In her most recent position at ATLAS, she managed the student support team, provided instruction design support, and was involved in the LAS online administration and steering committee.
Sharp will continue to support instructional technologies, such as the Moodle, in her new position.
"I am excited about getting the iSchool faculty more comfortable with using the ATLAS Moodle," Sharp said. "I was the resident expert on the Moodle learning management system for the College of LAS as well as for my colleagues in other units who used the system. I suspect this skill set will be put to good use at the iSchool."
Sharp hopes her enthusiasm for learning technologies will inspire her colleagues to try new things and encourages anyone interested in learning more to reach out.
"I am impressed by the team here," she said. "The Help Desk staff are truly top-notch people."
Sharp holds a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Illinois.
