The management domain is concerned with processes for controlling instructional technology, including management of resources, information, and delivery systems. Project management skills are highly desirable for managing instructional design, development, and utilization processes.
I worked in the Office of Institutional Research at Santa Clara University from 1988 until 1997, when I became the University Webmaster for two years. I then worked for a couple of years outside of higher education before returning to Institutional Research. Over the past couple of years I have managed a project to build a data mart to support reporting, analysis, and strategic planning at Santa Clara University. This required researching and implementing best practices in data warehousing for higher education. In March 2005 I presented my work to the PeopleSoft Higher Education User Group's national conference. This performance review from 2005 highlights some of my accomplishments and responsibilities during the preceding year.
