Valerie Weagle is a Project Director focusing on learner experience, instructional design, and multimedia production with EDC’s EdTech Leaders Online program. She has extensive experience designing engaging online learning experiences from small scale self-paced courses to larger web-based learning communities. She has a particular focus on designing unique interactive and media products to promote learner engagement.
Weagle currently leads ETLO’s work with the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences & Disorders (CAPCSD), creating a suite of self-paced online courses to support clinical educators. She also works on the Exploring Computer Science project; an NSF-funded initiative that aims to bring computer science interest and education to under-represented groups.
Recently, she has also worked with a project aiming to bring inquiry-based science education to classrooms by developing a robust educator resource site that complements a national science museum’s existing public website.
Previously, she played a lead role in developing and testing a new online version of the Intel® Learn Easy Steps curriculum. Designed to promote social and economic self-sufficiency, Intel® Learn Easy Steps bridges the digital divide worldwide by building the computer literacy skills of adults and youth.
Earlier in her career at EDC, Weagle supported middle school mathematics teachers in integrating technology tools into their classrooms as part of the Center for Integrating Technology in Education (CITEd) project. She also worked as a Research Assistant with the America Connects Consortium (ACC), providing technical assistance to grantees of the U.S. Department of Education’s Community Technology Centers Program.
