Nigel brings experience as a social scientist, instructional designer, teacher, and coach to his role, working alongside faculty to develop their approach to teaching in online and hybrid environments. He is drawn to the intersection of new media and the concept of community in online course settings. Nigel is particularly interested in how we assess the impact of those new technologies and pedagogies at both the course and institutional level. Outside of work, you might spot Nigel at your local wildlife refuge or national park, practicing his wildlife photography, which you can find online at nigelhaarstad.smugmug.com or at facebook.com/nigelhaarstadphotography.
