Featured Educator Office Hours: Miriam Cortez-Cooper and Karen Nicholas
3–4pm ET, Wednesday 23 June 2021
Join us and featured educators Miriam Cortez-Cooper and Karen Nicholas for a casual conversation about the different ways social annotation is used in the classroom to support student learning.
- Miriam Cortez-Cooper, Associate Professor/Assistant Program Director, Physical Therapy, Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions: Miriam Cortez-Cooper (she/her), PT, PhD, has been an educator in Physical Therapy in Master’s and entry-level Doctoral degree programs for over 20 years and teaches a hybrid learning class for the PhD program at RMU. Dr. Cortez-Cooper uses Hypothesis annotations to facilitate critical thinking in clinical and foundational science courses.
- Karen Nicholas, Assistant Professor, Management, Boise State University: Karen Nicholas (she/her) received her PhD in management from West Virginia University and has lived and worked in the US, Canada, New Zealand, the Bahamas, and many countries in Europe. She currently teaches in the areas of strategy, innovation, and change management, with interests in entrepreneurship and statistics. Prior to returning to graduate studies at WVU, Karen was an entrepreneur with her own consulting and software firms. Typically working with high-technology firms, Karen has experience with a range of both large and small firms. Her research interests focus on inter-firm networks, examining firms’ collections of alliances. Networks are examined for their role in the mobility of resources, including knowledge resources and social resources such as status. Karen is Canadian, and while she is an avid hockey fan, she is not a fan of winter!
