Welcome to Teaching and Learning Support (formerly Educational Technology and Curricular Innovation). Our goal is to promote teaching excellence across the curriculum. We provide resources that enhance student learning through innovative pedagogy, effective use of technology, and opportunities to collaborate on projects and share best practices in teaching Linfield students.
This webpage is a work in progress as we refine our mission, while offering workshops, one-on-one teaching consultations, and events.
We welcome your suggestions for workshops and other offerings.
Emily Nye, Director
Emily’s career includes teaching as well as administration. She has been a tenured Humanities professor focusing on composition and rhetoric, as well as writing center director on four very different campuses. In all situations she has worked closely with faculty on matters of teaching effectiveness, curriculum and assignment design, and use of technology in the classroom (in face-to-face as well as online environments).
Emily received her Ph.D. in English and Education from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She holds an M.A. in Journalism from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a B.A. in Humanities from Johns Hopkins. She moved to Oregon from San Diego in June, and is looking forward to exploring her new home.
Lige Armstrong, Educational Technologist
I have a background in pedagogy, teaching, and technology. I’m here to help you with technology that is available to you for your teaching endeavors. Outside of Linfield I spend time with my family and friends traveling, playing board games, and pursuing my hobbies, which include LEGO creations, photography, and being a geek.
I attended Oregon State University for my undergrad work starting in Computer Engineering, but receiving a B.S. in Theatre Arts, a B.S. in Media Communication, minor in Business in 2006. I completed my Masters of Arts in Teaching, focusing on theatre, math, and general science from George Fox University in 2010.
