Culture Influencer: Katie Alaniz

Dr. Katie Alaniz, assistant professor of Education, was invited to present at the 2020 Texas Computer Education Association’s Convention and Exhibition on February 5 in Austin. Her presentation was entitled, “C-Worthy Instruction: Sailing the Six C’s of Learning in the Digital Age,” and was created on the basis of the book, “Digital Media in Today’s Classrooms: The Potential for Meaningful Teaching, Learning, and Assessment.”

This book was coauthored with Dr. Dawn Wilson, professor of Education, and Joshua Sikora, assistant professor of Cinema and New Media Arts. It was published by Rowman & Littlefield Education. This presentation was given in loving memory of Dr. Wilson, without whom this book would not have been written. Her life will always be remembered through her teaching, her writing, and especially the legacy carried on by those she so lovingly taught and mentored during her time spent at HBU.
