Marcie Bober-Michel

Faculty Fellow

Marcie has long been affiliated with ITS. A decade ago, for example, she worked with Mark, James and Jim (Julius) to explore the ways in which a hybrid instructional format can support student learning in the large classroom setting. This year, she will focus on evaluation of the Canvas pilot — contributing as well to evaluative work associated with other ITS initiatives. Additionally, she is tasked with building evaluation capacity by designing a framework and associated protocols to ensure consistent data gathering across all projects or initiatives in which ITS is engaged.


Ph.D. in Learning Design & Technology from Arizona State University

Fun Fact
In my early 30s, I qualified for and ran in the Boston Marathon; my qualifying time was 3 hours/19 minutes (avg 7.6 minute mile).
