I am proud to be a part of the growing intellectual community at the European Graduate School. With the main campus in beautiful Saas-fee, Switzerland and a new campus in Malta, this important academic institution continues to make beneficial and necessary impressions on the world. My role at EGS is to advise and consult with the web team that builds www.egs.edu.
I am proud to have been asked to participate in the Penn State project called LunarLion, the first university-driven mission to the moon in history. LunarLion is based in the Applied Research Lab. My role in this project is to mentor the student web team who are using web technology for project management, scientific collaboration, and communication with the public across multiple digital environments.

In the Spring of 2013 I traveled to Japan offering a short course and workshop for the students of Ochanomizu University. I also authored a faculty development seminar for the faculty of the university, hosted by the Center for Research in Education. Also, I was asked to give the keynote address at the Plone Education Symposium Tokyo which is part of the annual Open Source Conference Japan at Mesei University also in Tokyo, hosted by the Plone Users Group Japan. It was quite an adventure, full of great people, places, and learning opportunities.
