Transitions in the Emporia State IDT Program

It is hard to believe an entire summer has gone and we are over a month into the Fall Semester!  First
let me take a moment to express what a privilege and honor it is to serve the Emporia State University (ESU) Instructional Design and Technology (IDT) Program students, faculty, staff, and alumni as Department Chair.  During the month of June, I worked closely with Dr. Childress and our administrative assistant, Janet Schneider on transitioning into the new position.  In July, we said farewell to Dr. Childress as a faculty member, but I can assure you, he remains an advocate for the ESU IDT program and a continued member of the IDT family.  We will continue to see him at various gatherings and professional events in the IDT field. I look forward to building upon the solid foundation Dr. Childress laid in his 11 years as department chair and advance the ESU IDT program to the next level.  Thank you, Dr. Childress!

We have been working on quite a few things over the last few months! Soon after this post, I will post these updates.  If you prefer to receive these via email, please subscribe to our email list at

I hope to send/post similar updates on a more regular basis throughout the year.  If you have news to share, or perhaps would like to author a guest post on our IDT blog, please contact me!
