What people say about me:
Bryan Alexander, who is (for me) an almost magical provider of thought-provoking resources for the higher education professional interested in technology.

“One of the highlights at the 2nd Annual Deans’ Institute was the roundtable discussion lead by Bryan Alexander. He engaged participants in a thought provoking discussion about open education in the liberal arts that encouraged this group of academic leaders to reconsider how they defined open education and what it means to the future of higher education. We will definitely keep Bryan on a short list for discussion facilitators for future ACAD events.”
Laura Rzepka, Executive Director,
American Conference of Academic Deans (ACAD)
“In the course of a one-day workshop and discussion, Bryan Alexander provided ideas and resources that opened the eyes of members of all four of the disciplines in my department (literature, composition, English education, and linguistics). His wide-ranging knowledge of trends and possibilities in instructional technology and digital storytelling led to much fruitful thinking and exchange. In the time since, faculty who have tried things that Bryan outlined have been very pleased with the results. Months later, people are still sharing positive reactions, and some would like him to come back as soon as possible.”

University of Michigan – Flint
It was great to have Bryan Alexander lead a day long workshop with our librarians and instructional technologists. Personally for me, it was very rewarding to see how our staff engaged with Bryan at an intellectual and strategic level. On large part this outcome was because of Bryan’s thought-provoking and insightful discussions. He really has a way of getting people out of their comfort zone, but in a very collegial and respectful way.
