     Michelle D. Mentzer, EdD, has been named senior instructional designer at Rose-Hulman to support the integration of learning and technology.

     A veteran educator, Mentzer has developed policies and guidelines for online technology and best practices for online learning. She has been working since late February to assist Rose-Hulman instructors with online learning opportunities, one of several educational initiatives in the institute’s strategic plan.

     Mentzer has served as a higher education faculty member and administrator in Europe and the United States, and she has worked to support military education on several continents. She gives workshops on learning design and learner support, including Myers-Briggs teaching and learning styles.

     For Johns Hopkins University’s Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, Mentzer was director of the instructional resource center (2012-14), distance education coordinator (2009-12) and instructional technologist/designer (2011-12). She oversaw development and maintenance of more than 500 live online courses per year, managed critical relationships with third-party vendors, provided strategic planning for online course development and educational content, and trained faculty and staff in instructional design and the use of specific educational technology tools.

     Mentzer continues as an adjunct online instructor for Johns Hopkins in the mental health counseling and school counseling master’s degree programs. She has also been an adjunct professor in clinical counseling psychology courses at the University of Maryland’s Europe/Middle East operations (2003-2014), and an education program manager for Central Texas College’s Europe/Middle East campus (2003-2009).
