Corey Lee

Assistant Professor

Throughout my career of teaching, I developed strong interests in the areas of distance education, mobile learning, interactive multimedia, and graphic/website design. In my classes, I introduce a wide range of software application and open-source packages to students, allowing them to master computer-based tools used in the design and creation of electronic media, such as electronic images, sounds, videos, text, and motion. More importantly, I guide students to explore and evaluate the educational values of these software applications.

Testimonials

    MelissaNatalieSkipRaymondCindychrisJulieNoah
  • Corey is very competent with technology, research, and instructional design. Every project I have done with him, or asked him to do, was done well and on time. He is easy to work with and is an interesting colleague who is very willing to share his culture and background. I have really enjoyed my association with him and hope to continue doing research with him.
    Dr. Melissa Cain
    The University of Findlay
  • As a Teacher Education faculty member, I have collaborated with Dr. Lee on several curriculum and research projects. I have observed first-hand Corey's creative skill as a researcher, instructional designer, online teacher, and advisor. During the past three years in the College of Education, Dr. Lee has demonstrated a persistent desire to improve the quality of educational experiences for our College of Education students.
    Dr. Natalie Abell
    The University of Findlay
  • Dr. Lee has demonstrated his expertise in instructional design, multimedia, the use of web-based tools and web page design, the integration of technology into the teaching and learning process for faculty and others, development of synchronous and asynchronous online courses, use of various online course management systems such as Blackboard and the development of various computer programs for data gathering and record keeping. This is a sample of Dr. Lee's many skills and deep technology knowledge base.
    Dr. John F. Cindric, Jr.
    The University of Findlay
  • Dr. Lee contributed in many positive ways to our organization. He was a dedicated colleague who used his skills and talents to provide our faculty with excellent training and program opportunities. During his time at The University of Findlay, Dr. Lee made a positive and lasting impact upon online/distance education, assisting faculty in developing courses connected to significant pedagogical principles and best practices.
    Dr. Ray McCandless
    The University of Findlay
  • Corey is always willing to collaborate on projects. Not only is he a good teacher when sharing his knowledge, he is a good listener. He is an effective troubleshooter and problem-solver, especially with technical issues. Importantly, it is obvious that Corey has a genuine interest in wanting students to get the best learning experience possible.
    Cindy Bowers
  • Corey is an exceptional team member. He and I worked together on a research project. He was also an instructional designer in the ATS at The University of Findlay. Corey is a faculty member's savior when it comes to technology - he is able to easily determine a person's level of ability then provide that person with the appropriate degree of assistance. He is patient and customer-centered. I particularly admired his ability to teach the current software but at the same time be looking for technology solutions to challenges that we faced. I highly recommend Corey for a teaching or technology related position.
    Dr. Chris Ward
    The University of Findlay
  • Corey had a great grasp on database systems and developed a system for faculty to use for tenure and promotion as well as annual evaluations. Corey also developed a system to track the budget for the Dean of the College of Education. We had just started to work with TK20 and Corey worked with faculty implementing that system of tracking student assessment data. As a colleague Corey was a team player who worked well with others in the College. He also trained faculty for online course certification.
    Dr. Julie McIntosh
    The University of Findlay
  • He used his knowledge about the principles of instructional design to create an online course that prepared instructors for teaching online. His course was very effective and I have learned a lot about instructional design from Corey.
