Leah Chuchran

Engaged in higher education since 2006, Leah currently holds the position of Digital Learning Specialist at Emory University representing the Center for Digital Scholarship. The center is a university-wide facility and resource provided to faculty, staff and students at Emory who are interested in incorporating digital technology into teaching, research, business workflows, publishing, and exhibiting scholarly work.

She is responsible for all things “assessment and evaluation”, faculty enrichment programs and grad student training along with teaching best practices in digital learning environments. The position requires project management expertise for a wide variety of disciplines since Emory, an R1 institution, is not only a liberal arts college, the community is also comprised of professional schools and a large healthcare institution.

The process includes planning, design, execution and evaluative stages of curricula development, training and workshops, and most importantly, learner engagement strategies and satisfaction. The projects involve learners of all ages and life experiences. In addition, she is well-versed in effective pedagogical (and heutagogical) integration of educational technology which includes social media applications, web 2.0 applications, video, audio and synchronous web tools, universal design for learning (UDL) best practices, instructional design theories, classroom assessment techniques (CATs), curriculum assessment techniques and rubric creation and the integration of learning management systems in hybrid and residential curricula.

Presently, Leah instructs in the digital environment and puts forth a great deal of effort to bring the human element to the online class utilizing easy-to-use web 2.0 technologies. She also co-developed and facilitates the Foundations of Teaching Online course offered to Emory faculty who will be teaching in the blended or online environments.
