Virtual School Meanderings

About Michael Barbour

I began my current position as Director of Doctoral Studies for the Isabelle Farrington College of Education and an Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership at Sacred Heart University in August 2013.  Prior to that, I was an Assistant Professor at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, where I taught Instructional Technology and Education Evaluation & Research. I’ve also been an adjunct professor for the Department of Educational Technology at Boise State University since 2011.

I completed my Ph.D. in Instructional Technology from the University of Georgia. Originally from the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, my interest in distance education for rural students began after accepting my first high school teaching position in a regional high school in a rural community of approximately 3,500 people.

Having been educated in an urban area, I was troubled by the inequity of opportunity provided to my rural students and began a program to offer Advanced Placement (i.e., university-level) social studies courses over the Internet to students at my own school and other schools in the district. My current research interests focus on the effective design and delivery online learning to K-12 students in virtual school environments, particularly those in rural jurisdictions.
