Terry Ann Morris, Ed.D.

Web Design & Instructional Technology

Background: Experience in Information Technology and Education

My life experiences and work are a combination of information technology and education. Over the years, I've worked as a software developer, systems analyst, college professor, author, and mentor for instructors new to online teaching and learning. Any project that has some combination of instructional technology / education / e-learning / web design is of great interest to me. View Resume (pdf).
