Bob is a Digital Learning Strategist and has been working with the Center since 2014 as a lead thought partner and chief architect of digital and in-person learning. Since joining WestEd in 2003, he has set strategic direction and managed numerous digital professional learning projects ranging from dynamic resource collections and interactive courses, to professional learning communities for teachers, administrators, and colleagues. His experiences in a variety of national and local educational contexts, as a classroom teacher and as a director of communications and technology for a national school reform network, serve to ground his digital strategy skills in the real-world experiences of educators.
Bob’s most recent projects — Formative Assessment Insights, a six-month digital professional learning experience for over 2,000 teachers across seven states, and Student Agency in Assessment and Learning — use a variety of collaboration and video technologies and content formats to engage teams of teachers in the ongoing implementation of formative assessment practices in their classrooms.
Bob holds an M.A. in Social Sciences in Education from Stanford University, a B.S. in Elementary Education from the University of New Mexico, and a B.A. in American Civilization from Brown University. Outside of work, Bob loves soccer, collecting textiles, and looking for his next favorite song to listen to.
