Skills and Interests

I have taught business ethics courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. I emphasize the need to distinguish ethical decision-making from mere legal compliance in making management decisions.
I am particularly interested in developing blended and hybrid course designs in business law and other law-related topics for the Blackboard CMS.
In private law practice I have handled cases involving copyright infringement and as an educator I have taught courses in intellectual property law.
I am in the process of evaluating various technology tools that could be applied in the on-line portions of my course designs. I am participating in an on-line study program called "Making the Virtual Classroom a Realty" ("MVCR") through the Illinois Online Network, a state-funded program affiliated with the University of Illinois.

Law study traditionally is accomplished through case study. My interest is in developing course designs/materials for small group in-class case presentations where two groups face off against one another as plaintiff and defendant. The case studies use the full text of court rulings on actual lawsuits.
My course designs emphasize participatory learning and group learning processes rather than lecture presentations. I am interested particularly in developing asynchronous and synchronous on-line communication strategies to facilitate participatory learning.

I am an attorney practicing primarily business-related litigation. I have been a lawyer since 1986. Prior to my law career I worked for a number of years as a free lance writer in magazine and newspaper journalism, public relations, audio and video production, fund raising, curriculum design, and other areas. I began teaching business law and other law-related courses in 2002 and now have taught at several Chicago-area schools including Robert Morris College, Prairie State College, Argosy University, and Career Colleges of Chicago. My courses are designed as blended classroom/on-line presentations. I have worked primarily with the Blackboard course management system.
