Dr. Greg Zobel
Assistant Professor of Educational Technology
Professional: I am an Assistant Professor of Educational Technology in the Division of Teacher Education. Currently my emphases are teaching graduate courses in the MS in Education: Information Technology and undergraduate courses that prepare teachers to use technology in the classroom. At WOU, I am interested in understanding and improving usability in online graduate education courses. I am also researching how Open Source and Open Educational resources may significantly improve graduate students’ learning. Grant writing is also a source of professional pleasure.
Background: I joined WOU in January of 2012 after earning my PhD in Technical Communication and Rhetoric from Texas Tech. My dissertation measured mobile devices’ usability in the field.
Personal: I am a third-generation professor, third-generation Phi Beta Kappan, native Oregonian (born and raised in Corvallis), budgie lover, art collector, and bibliophile. I enjoy writing and revising: words are a constant source of pleasure. I currently live in Monmouth with my partner of 19 years. Please call me ‘gz.’
