Director of Innovation and Teacher Development

Lisa Hervey, Ph.D., NBCT | I am the Director of Innovation and Teacher Development K-12. I am currently a Teaching Professor in the Instructional Technology Master’s Program at North Carolina State University.  During my 20 year tenure, starting with 10 years as a public school 6th - 8th Language Arts teacher, and most recently 10 years as a Senior Research Scholar at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation at NCSU. I  am a National Board Certified Teacher and earned an M.Ed. in K-12 Reading and  Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction from NC State. I lead revolutionary district-wide culture shifts via blended models of professional learning and strategic planning to support local technology initiatives. I recently collaborated on several  Massive Open Online Course for Educators, Coaching Digital Learning and Learning Differences. My most recent publication, in Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge - Exploring, Developing, and Assessing TPACK,  stems from my research on veteran teachers’ complex change process when developing pervasive, robust digital learning and teaching capacities. I  have a strong vision and passion for what it takes to meet educators, at all levels, “where they are,” to develop strategic plans and professional learning that addresses their immediate needs to further student achievement, My website http://www.lisahervey.com/  Follow me @lisahervey
