Ohio University-Chillicothe faculty member, Allison White, assistant professor and Regional Higher Education Office Technology Program coordinator, recently published two peer-reviewed articles in academic journals.
The first, “Development and Delivery of an Interdisciplinary Course for Nursing and Office Administration,” was written in collaboration with fellow Ohio University faculty member Char Miller, an associate professor in nursing, and appeared in the Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies in Education this spring. This article details the unique process of creating interdisciplinary coursework for degree programs including nursing, office administration, health services administration, human services technology and other related fields.
“Creating a Technology-Rich Associate Degree Program in Office Administration,” written with then-student Leanna Ater (Hostetler), was featured in the Journal of Teaching and Learning with Technology early this summer. This article explores the creation of technology-rich academic environments and curriculum that includes activities and assessments enhanced by technology.
White is currently completing research on commonalities in faculty development programs that support faculty teaching with technology. She is working in conjunction with faculty support and instructional designers from Loyola University in Chicago and Utah State University. Further, she has presented her work at two international conferences including the United States Distance Learning Association conference in St. Louis and the International Society for Technology in Education conference which met in Atlanta, Ga., in early July.
“I would like to thank the Chillicothe Campus faculty members who have mentored me, the administration members who have supported me and the great students who have motivated me for the past several years,” she said.
A former OU-C student, White earned her associate degree in secretarial technology from Ohio University, her bachelor’s degree with a dual major in business administration and marketing from Franklin University and a master’s degree in technology education from Wright State University.
