NARRATIVE
When I was a practicing veterinarian, I saw colleagues struggle more with interpersonal and business issues than with medicine or surgery. It was not until after my social work training in counseling and psychotherapy that I began to understand the underlying causes of these issues, and that people often bring the same character traits, anxieties, defenses, and coping strategies to work that they use at home. Since conflicts in the workplace are inevitable, the only real choice is between reacting with familiar defenses, or responding with understanding. I provide personal coaching to help people identify and understand their past patterns of interacting with others, and with that insight, I help them develop effective ways of restoring, building, and maintaining effective working relationships. In addition to personal coaching, I also provide business consulting to help clients discover and implement new strategies for building and managing their organization.

My passion for building and researching innovative teaching technology began when I was in private practice, and was formalized in 1998 when I earned a PhD in veterinary informatics. The focus of my training was on 1) integrating the efforts of end-users and information technology personnel, 2) the structure of controlled medical vocabularies, and 3) patient information acquisition. Upon graduation I was a founding member of the Biomedical Informatics Research Group (BIRG) at Virginia Tech. BIRG developed the Diagnostic Pathfinder, which was software used to teach veterinary students how to analyze clinical laboratory data.

My most recent work is the development of Case Applied Learning and the Applied Learning Platform. Case Applied Learning uses a “do, think, and learn” approach to building expert thinking skills. The process begins by asking, “What should learners be able to do at the end of their training?” which is then used to identify what thinking skills are required, and then what content needs to be mastered and reinforced through repeated practice. Case Applied Learning can be used in a single course or with a series of courses in which each builds upon the foundational competencies of the earlier courses. http://CaseAppliedLearning.com .

The Applied Learning Platform is used to implement Case Applied Learning. This platform provides a suite of web-based tools used to create and deliver cases scenarios for use in teaching, learning, and practicing evidence-based thinking skills. Educators use this platform to author case scenarios, and to model their own expert thinking to learners in the classroom. Learners then work through similar case scenarios to develop and practice their own thinking skills. The product of these analyzed case scenarios is an outlined assessment that contains a learner’s assertions (conclusions) about a scenario along with the relevant observations and data from the scenario that provide evidence for those assertions. As such, an assessment is an explicit representation of a learner’s understanding of course material along with the demonstrated ability to apply that understanding in an authentic context. Assessments can be brought to class for discussion, or submitted to a course management system prior to class as evidence of pre-class preparation. Case scenarios can also be used in class as a team-based learning exercise.

The Applied Learning Platform is the exact opposite of an expert system in that an expert system provides expertise to its users, whereas the Applied Learning Platform is used by educators to build expertise in its users. The Platform is available at http://WhenKnowingMatters.com.

I have also taught in the business and practice management curriculum at the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine and at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech. While at Virginia Tech, I also coordinated a student-run virtual corporation in which students developed software as part of an interdisciplinary learning experience.

Prior to my academic career, I was a practicing veterinarian for fourteen years with an emphasis in small animal medicine and surgery, and owned and operated two veterinary hospitals in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
