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 Education 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 a richer learning experience for students, teachers, and administrators.
This site is my evolving collection of ideas, presentations and practice with academic research. Enjoy!
