Sherry Clouser, Ed.D. Assistant Director of Learning Technologies
As the Assistant Director for Learning Technologies, Dr. Sherry Clouser is responsible for ensuring the evaluation, adoption, and ongoing support of strategic learning technologies for the University of Georgia, including the University’s learning management and student response systems. She works closely with the Coordinator for Emerging Learning Technologies to explore the field and select the most relevant for UGA and promising technologies to bring forth to the university community. Through these core activities, and in collaboration with the Director, she works to set strategic directions for UGA in regards to learning technologies.
Sherry’s daily activities include facilitating workshops and seminars on centrally-supported learning technologies, providing individualized consultations with faculty and teaching assistants on improving instruction, particularly with technology, and general support of eLearning Commons, the University’s learning management system, and Turning Technologies, the student response system.
Sherry serves on a number of UGA and University System of Georgia committees, including the eLC Planning and Support team (chair), Learning Technologies Advisory Committee (co-facilitator), UGA Student Technology Fee Committee, USG Digital Learning Environments Strategic Advisory Board, and GeorgiaVIEW Functional Advisory Committee.
She is also active in the Learning Technologies Consortium (past chair), a group of professionals across nine institutions. Participation in this community provides opportunities to consult with colleagues on emerging technologies, develop best practices for selection and implementation of technologies, and engage in joint scholarship via conference presentations and publications. She co-edited a series of essays, Teaching with Technology 2: The Stories Continue, with G. Christopher Clark from the Kaneb Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of Notre Dame.
