PHD Student University of Missouri School of Information Science and Learning Technologies
Hello! My name is Kerry Townsend and I am happily back on campus -- this time studying for a PhD in Information Science and Learning Technologies at the University of Missouri. My Mizzou career started over twenty years ago with a focus in Secondary Eduction and I couldn't be happier with where it has taken me.
During my coursework, I studied effective school library programs and curriculum. As a student in the School of Communication, I studied how students and teachers are impacted by media. I am also the Library Media Coordinator for Columbia Public Schools and the opportunity to study these issues deeply within the context of my professional position has made for richer learning experiences for students, teachers, and administrators.
This site is my evolving collection of ideas, presentations and practice with academic research. Enjoy!
