Robert Barry
I am New England born, bred and schooled, as is my wife and my three daughters. I have taught theology at Providence College for 22 years, using the most appropriate technology for the task at-hand, even if it wasn’t the highest technology available. My interest in technology dates back to writing BASIC programs for my TI-99/A, and progressed through using Edlin to create and modify batch-files to dial up library catalogs back in the pre-Windows days. I’ve settled into the MacOS/iOS world, though I still run WordPerfect when I want a program that will let me see where it’s putting the codes. I’m on my third LMS, my fourth remote polling system, and am looking forward to putting Scrivener to good use while writing on my sabbatical in the Fall.

Adam Hauerwas

Dominique Kerins
With a BS in biology, a MA degree in philosophy from Boston College and now 10+ years combined teaching experience in France, Massachusetts and online, it is fair to say that Dominique’s academic and professional interests have evolved over the years. Although traditional ethics, bioethics and critical reasoning courses have made up the bulk of her teaching load over the years, her developing untethered teaching practices have inspired new academic and professional pursuits.

Lynne Lawson
Lynne received her undergraduate degree in physics from Ursinus College and her Ph.D. in physics from Auburn University. She has been a member of the faculty at Providence College for over twenty years. Since first reading Eric Mazur’s Peer Instruction as a young faculty member, Lynne has been striving to find new ways to help her students learn. She has attended many workshops and conferences related to evidenced-based teaching techniques and has brought these techniques into the classroom. As a result, Lynne’s classroom has evolved from a lecture-based format to a more active learning approach and she has observed more engagement in the classroom and improved learning outcomes.  Lynne was among a small group of faculty who piloted online learning through the School of Continuing Education at Providence College nearly 10 years ago and has continued teaching online classes since then. Teaching in this format has increased her comfort level with technology, which has enhanced both her online and traditional courses. Since participating in a faculty seminar in Inclusive Excellence in STEM, during the 2017-2018 academic year, Lynne has become even more convinced of the value of the high impact practices such as active learning and will continue to evolve her teaching.
