Welcome to my MLT practicum project website!

Before you start reviewing my practicum site, take some time to review a little bit more about me below.

About Me

My name is Steven Nagel and I serve as an Instructional Designer on the Distance Education team in The Office of Distance Education and eLearning at The Ohio State University. In this role, I work with faculty one-on-one to develop three to five online courses per semester (typically a mix of full developments and revisions). In addition, I contribute to the DE team’s Multimedia Advancement Initiative to investigate and assess innovative, interactive ways to engage students in online courses.

Most recently, I have begun to develop research studies focusing on best practices for teaching with technology in both online and face-to-face courses by serving as a Principal Investigator for Distance Education multimedia research and assisting an interdisciplinary team to develop an a grant proposal that outlines iPad-enabled active learning activities for introductory science courses at Ohio State for the Digital Flagship Initiative.
