Foundations of Web Design: Introduction to HTML & CSS
I am currently working on writing a textbook, video instruction, and a supporting website for Web Design instruction that would be published in August 2013 with Pearson Education/PeachPit Press. For this textbook, I am researching the best possible pedagogical models for delivering course content. Specifically, I am exploring intensive classroom experiences, and the "flipped" teaching model. I also plan to write articles for the top industry publication .NET magazine, International Journal of Design, and to present my work at South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi). The research money will help fund consulting fees with industry professionals, develop online surveys, develop video instruction, and the supporting website geared to promote the book, videos, and research findings.
